THURSDAY. JUNE 15, 1967 

"4 Walls, 5 Forms" is the title of this work of chromatic sculp- 
ture on display at the Student Union. The wood-laminate, poly- 
chromed work by George Sugarman is in six different colors. 

Colored Sculpture Exhibit 
Opens In Student Union 

Colored Sculpture, an exhibi- 
tion of chromatic sculpture se- 
lected by Sidney Geist. noted 
sculptor and critic, is being cir- 
culated throughout the United 
States by the American Federa- 
tion of Arts. It will open at the 
Student Union. Colonial Lounge 
on June 14 and continue through 
July 21. 

Like so much else that is 
"new", color has been present 
in sculpture for a very long time. 
What is new is its pervasiveness 
at the moment, the enthusiasm 
with which it has been employed 
on all sides. 

Color, it seems, rather than 
construction, movement and 
sound; color, with its swift trans- 
formative powers — it is color, the 
tool of the rival art of painting, 
that effects the ultimate break 
from Brancusian rigor as con- 
temporary sculpture moves into 
Its full baroque phase. 

New, too, is the brashness. the 
insistence with which color is now 
employed. Absent here are sur- 
faces gently toned, antiqued or 
patinated. Instead we find color 

frankly applied in full satura- 

This frees wood carving, for ex- 
ample, from the romance of its 
facture. and the wood itself from 
natural history. Even the glamor 
of steel is suppressed by color, 
and in short, we find ourselves 
in the presence of creations neu- 
tral in respect to the specific ten- 
sions and specific attractions of 
the stuff of which they are made. 

Quite unexpectedly, color has 
the virtue of divesting sculpture 
of a number of inherited associa- 
tions, and of enabling us freshly 
to see form as form. 

It may be that color makes 
sculpture simply visible at this 
point. And it has been used to 
this end by a number of artists 
whose work exhibits a multipli- 
cation of forms, an intricacy of 
space and a deviousness of pur- 
pose. These effects are still un- 
rationalized. they are clearly 
disorienting, but, for the sculp- 
tors, they are unavoidable. At 
any rate, they would be rendered 
muddy by monochrome sculpture.

The Long Hot Summer 

Special Programs Will Highlight 

At the University of Massachusetts, what used to be summer vacation is now sum- 
mer session, which this year will involve study programs for some 6500 students in six 

Approximately 60Q0 have registered for regular and special summer session terms 
on the Amherst campus beginning Tuesday, June 13. An additional 500 will study at insti- 
tutes on the UMass campus and at University-sponsored programs on Nantucket and in 
England, France, Spain, Italy and Germany. 

As many as 15,000 more are expected to use the Amherst campus at various times 
during the summer for conferences and meetings. 

Besides the regular siunmer session of two 

six-week terms, an 11-week session starts June 19 
for SOO "Swing Shift" freshmen. These students 
will conrtplete the equivalent of a semester of work 
this summer, stay home during: the fall semester 
and rejoin their fre»>hman classmates in the spring: 
■otf 1968. The program, in its third year, is de- 
sififned to accommodate qualified applicants who 
otherwise would have been turned down for lack 
of space. 

Special institutes on campus this summer will 
Include Universiity-sponsored programris in speech 
and hearing therapy and in Chinese and Russian 
languages, plus NationaJ Defense Education Act 
institutes— one for secondary school teachers in 
English, one for secondary school teachers in his- 
tory and one for college engineering teachers in 
computer simulation. There will also be NDEA- 
sponsored research and study projects lin botany 
and zoology. 

Continuing for the '■ second summer at the 
Amherst and Boston campuses will be the feder- 
ally-sponsored Upward Bound program, college 
preparation study for 100 high school students 
at each campus. 

An estimated 1500 persons are expected at 
the Amherst campus July 7 through 9 for the 

New England Camera Club conference. This is 
the largest of two dozen conferences and meetv 
ings scheduled thnjugh the summer. 

The longest is the Japanese Summer Institute 
from July 10 to Aug. 4, which will bring 35 stu- 
dents to Amherst from Japan for a four-week stu- 
dy program. The National Ski Patrol, the Insti- 
tute of Teachers of the Deaf, the New England 
Weavers and Demolay are some of the others. 

In England, a University-sponsored summer 
seminar will study English literature and drama 
at Oxford University; in Italy, another UM group 
will study art, literature, history and political 
science at the University of Bologna; and in Ma- 
irid the UMass Graduate Center for Hispanic 
Studies will begin its first summer. 

The IMass-NDEA Institute for secondary 
school French teachers at Arcachon, France, will 
begin its third summer and the Atlantic Studies 
Program at Freiburg Iniverslty in Germany, a 
year-around program, will continue. 

Two writing workshops will be held at the UM 
facility on Nantucket this year, one in technical 
writing from July 24 to Aug. 11 and the second 
in imaginative writing under novelist Richard 
Kim from Aug. 13 to Sept. 1.

Race Riots 
Flare In Ohio 

CINCINNATI. Ohio (^ — Police 
— backed by National Guardsmen 
carrying bayoneted rifles — re- 
stored an uneasy order in Cin- 
cinnati Negro neighborhoods to- 
day after hit - and - run gangs 
caused more than $lmillion dam- 
ages in two nights of rioting. 

Two major fires burned an es- 
timated $800,000 at a warehouse 
and laundry early today. 

In apparent unorganized riots, 
gangs of Negro youths struck in 
widely spread communities — 
looting, setting fires, harassing 
police and firemen. 

City officials still had not been 
able to pinpoint the cause of the 
rioting. No particular unrest had 
been reported before rioting 
eupted Monday night. 

Shortly before order was re- 
stored. Police Chief Jacob Schott 
said "huge bands of marauders" 
were hitting in almost every di- 
rection in predominantly Negro 

Mayor Walton Bachrach said a 
restive peace returned to riot 
areas early Wednesday. 

Bachrach said the 800 Guards- 
men on-scene "will stay here as 
long as we have to use them to 
maintain law and order." 

Merchants and residents of the 
areas where vandals and looters 
struck began cleaning stores and

Dr. John M. Maki, chairman of the Asian Studies Program and 
professor of government at the University of Massachusetts, has 
been named vice-dean of the University's College of Arts and Scien- 
ces, UMass Provost Oswald Tippo announced. 

In this capacity Dr. Maki will ser>e as deputy to College of Arts 
and Sciences Dean I. Moyer Hunsberger in all affairs of the college, 
largest in the I'niversity. His primar>' duty will be to assist Dean 
Hunsberger with faculty personnel matters.

as chairman of the Faculty Seminar on Asia and is one of the Uni- 
versity's representatives on the Four-College Asian-African Studies 
Committee. His duties as vice-dean will start full time on Sept. 1, 
but during the summer he will divide his time between teaching 
and administrative work. 

Prior to his arrival at I'M, Dean Maki spent 18 years on the fa- 
culty at the I'nlversity of Washington in Seattle, where he was a 
member of the Far Eastern and Russian Institute and Chairman

Russians Promote Convening 
Of U. N. General Assembly 

—The Soviet Union pressed yes- 
terday for an emergency session 
of the'U.N. General Assembly to 
take action against Israel amid 
•peculation that Premier Alexei 
N. Kosygin mlgtit attend. 

The Security Council was 
■chedttled to meet on a Soviet 
teeehition calling for Isriael to 
wMhdraw Immediately from the 
terrttory it seised In its blitz 
wmr affalnst Egypt, Jordan and 

Council delegates believed the 
resolution would get only four 
of the nine votes needed for 
adoption, clearing the way for 
action on the Soviet request 
for the assembly to meet. 

Following defeat of the Soviet 
resolution, Secretary-General U. 
Thant would poll the 122 U.N. 
members by telegram, and the 
necessary majority of 62 coun- 
tries W61S expected to agree to 
the emergency session. Thant 
then was likely to call the ses- 
sion on 24 hours' notice. 

Speculation that the Soviet 
preinier M'ould attend stemmed 
frorn a lett<T from Soviet For- 
eign Mlnisteir Andrei Gromylto 
to Thant Tuesday saying "lead- 
ing statesmen of the Soviet 
Union" would attend. 

Soviet and other Communist 
sources at the United Nations 
said they did not know to whom 
Gromyko was referring, and 
Soviet spokesmen in Moscow re- 
fused to comment on the specu- 
lation about Kosygin. The Soviets 
obtained a permit to land a 
special plane in New York about 
Thursday but postponed the 
flight, apparently awaiting the 
scheduling of the assembly ses- 
sion. The U.S. Embassy in Mos- 
cow said the Soviet government 
had not requested any visas for 
the flight. 

Should Kosygin come to New 
York, many other heads of gov- 
enunent and (HMsibly even Pree- 
klAnt .lohnson were expected 
to attend the session. 

The feeling was widespread 
among Arab delegations that the 
Russians were promoting the 
as.sembly .session primarily to 
divert attention from their fail- 
ure to help the Arabs in the 
war. In line with this. Saudi 
Arabian delegate Jamil M. Ba- 
roody commented that for the 
Ambs, the result of an assembly 
session would be "zero." 

Gromyko's letter said that 
despite the Security Council's 
three cease-fire resolutions. Israel 
had "seized further territories" 
from Egypt. Jordan and Syria. 

The letter called for "the con- 
vening of an emergency special 
session of the United Nations 
General Assembly within 24 
hours" to demand "the immedi- 
ate withdrawal of Israel forces 
behind the armistice lines" fixed 
at the end of the 1949 Arab- 
Israeli war. While Gromyko did 
not say so. his letter indicated 
that he was acting under the 
assembly's 1950 "uniting for 
peace" resolution, which was 
adopted to circumvent the Soviet 
veto in the council. The Soviet 
Union has always called it illegal. 

An emergency special session 
can be called only under that 
resolution, and only when the 
council has failed to act for 
peace "because of lack of unan- 
imity of the permanent memibers. 
the big powers. 

The Soviet resolution before 
the Security Council "vigorous- 
ly condemns' Israel's aggressive 
activities and continued occupa- 
tion" of part of Egypt, Syria 
and Jordan and "demands that 
Israel should Inunediately and 
unconditionally" withdraw her 
troops behind the armistice 

U. S. Ambassador Arthur J. 
Goldberg told the council at a 
meeting Tuesday the resolution 
was "a prescription for renewed 
hostilities." He said it would "let 
everything go back to exactly 
where it was before the fight- 
ing began of June 5," with the 
Gulf of Aqaba again blockaded 
and Arab and Israeli forces once 
mor e "in dir e ct confr 

He urged that the council en- 
courage "the warring parties to 
live together in peace" by adopt- 
ing a U.S. resolution calling for 
them to negotiate withdrawal of 
troops, renunciation of force, 
maintenance of vital internation- 
al rights and establishment of a 
durable peace In the Middle East. 
Fedorenko served notice he 
would veto that resolution. 

I n Washington, President 
Johnson repeated his pledge of 
U.S, support for the territorial 
inti^grity of all Middle East na- 
tions but said "events of the 
days ahead" would determine 
how it is carried out. He said 
that the first priority for the 
United States was "peace In the 

The foreign ministers of the 
15 North Atlantic Treaty Organ- 
ization nations were meeting in 
Luxembourg, and eight of them 
were reported supporting such 
Israeli demands as Arab recog- 
nition of Israel's statehood and 
the rights of Israeli shipping to 
use the Suez Canal and the Gulf 
of Aqaba. France was not among 

Israel meanwhile began ad- 
ministering the territory west of 
the Jordan River as a separate 
entity. Reliable sources said the 
area would remain separate from 
Israel until a final settlement is 

The Old City of Jerusalem will 
be incorporated into Israel, how- 
ever, and air-conditioned sight-

the holy places there. The sources 
said other former areas of Jor- 
dan would have a special status 
with their own currency, customs 
posts and telephone system, and 
Arabs would not be jdlowed to 
pass freely Into Israel. 

Jordan called for an Immedi- 
ate Arab summit nutting to 
work out a common stand for 
n settlement with Israel. The 
Sudan has offered Khartoum 
as a site for such a meeting, 
and Egyptian President Gamal 
Abdel Nasser has said he would 

But King Hassan II of Morocco 
rejected a summit conference, 
arguing that it would be dom- 
inated by "self-criticism and mu- 
tual objections." He suggested 
that the foreign ministers meet

As Arab leaders pondered their 
next moves, newspapers of the 
Arab world demanded a new 
arms buildup to avenge the de- 
feat by Israel and the seizure of 
American and British oil inter- 
ests in the Middle East. 

A political battle shaped up In 
Israel with the decision of lead- 
ers of Rafi, the party of former 
Premier David Ben-Gurion and 
Defense Minister Moshe Dayan, 
to try to negotiate a return to 
the ruling Mapal headed by 
Premier Levi Eshkol. The party 
split from Mapal in 1965. 

The U.S. Navy conununica- 
tlons ship Liberty, attacked last

with 24 of her 275 crewmen 
trapped in her flooded holds 
and presumed dead.

wounded of the 75 sailors hurt 
in the attack had been trans-

Harvard Prexy 

Defends Older 


President Nathan M. Pusey of 
Harvard University says he re- 
jects the idea that the younger 
generation must continuously be 
at war with the old. 

The 60-year-old university 
head told the 1967 graduating 
class in a baccalaureate address 
that there "is no quarrel between 
generations" because f>eople can- 
not t>e judged "by a criterion of 

He said he found it hard to ac- 
cept the notion "that . . . people 
under the age of 30 are trust- 
worthy, whereas those above the 
age are not." 

"If one learns anything from a 
lifetime of association with peo- 
ple, it is that you cannot place 
them on a scale of merit t»y a 
criterion of age. Nature has 
never been that simple. 

"The extremists in your gen- 
eration," he told the students, 
"say the world is a rotten place, 
that older people — 'hypocrites all- 
have made it and keep it that 
way . . . and that the young, as 
virtuous as their elders are evil, 
are called to set it right." 

Venman Describes Summer School 
As "Primarily Enriching" 



While enrollment has in- 
creased from past years. It is 
now levelling ofif to about 25 
percenit oif the fall semester, ac 
cording to the director of the 
Summer Session, Dr. William 
O. Venman. The only limita- 
tion on enrollment was the 
number of swing^hift fresh- 
men, of whom 3340 were ac- 

But Dr. Venman went on to 
explain how summer school is 
developing in other ways. 

Although it was probably 
justified In the past to look on 
the session as nothing but a 
service for students who have 
flunked courses, this image Is 
now fading, he said. But Ven- 
man quickly defended the op- 
portunity for students to make 
up failed courses. Everyone de- 
serves a second chance," he 
said, adding: that "our evalu- 
ation criteria are not infalli- 

"If the summer atrnosphere 
is conducive to making-up 
courses," he oooifttnued, "it is 
well and good."

Historical City Opened to Israelis 

JERUSALEM UPi — The gates 
of Jerusalem's Old City were 
thrown open today for tens of 
thousands of Israelis to celebrate 
the ancient harvest feast of Sha- 
buoth at the Wailing Wall, 
Judaism's most sacred site. 

A stream of men, women and 
children from all parts of the 
country arrived at the venerated 
area in what seemed to be one of 
the biggest pilgrimages in the 
history of the S,000-year-old city. 
An estimated 150,000 Jews 
crossed over from Israel proper 
by early afternoon. 

The former slum area to the 
west of the wall has been bull- 
dozed away since Israeli forces 
took the Old City last week. 
They cleared a wide space 
around the 60-foot high wadl, 
last remnant of the second Jew- 
ish temple that was destroyed by 
■the Ronnans in 70 A.D. Now it 
can be seen in all its imposing 

There Orthodox Jews wearing 
white prayer shawls swayed back 
and forth, lamenting the destruc- 
tion of the ancient temple.

make up deficiencies. Venman 
described the session primarily 
as enrichment for many stu- 

He estimated five percent of 
the students are at the sum- 
mer session to graduate in less 
than four years. Another 
group -one third of the stu- 
dent number — is composed of 
graduate students. 

Venman continued that many 
grads go to school in the warm 
months because they live here 
and, even when he was a grad-

cious little else to do for three 

Honors projects are not 
among course offerings for 
undergraduates but there are 
programs of independent study 
and reading for the summer, 
said the director. For graduate 
students, there are opportuni- 
ties in every field for accumu- 
lating degree credit. 

Sunmner session Is an Inte- 
gral part of the University, 
according to Venman, who Is 
currently president of the Na- 
tional Association of College 
and University Sununer Ses- 
sions. "I can't imagine closing 
down for 12 weeks — It's just 
good management to have a 
summer school." 

As far as he knows, the di- 
rector stated, the UMass sum- 
mer .school is the only one not 
financed entirely out of tuition. 
The session is given complete 
support by the Commonwealth, 
like the academic year. 

In another way, UMass is 
different from «»ome colleges In 
that the summer session is a 
function of the whole Unlversl- 
t>'. Retristration Is done by the 
Registrar's Office, billing by 
the Treasurer's offlr* and pro- 
gramming by the academic de- 
partments said Venman.

Water Problems Report Published 
By University Extension Service 

A report on the proceedings of a 1965 UiUver- 
sity of Massachuselits cooiference on New Eng> 
kind's water supply problems hias been published 
by (the UMass Cooperative Elxtension Service. 

The' publicatnian contains reports on the find- 
ings and research papers presented ait a two-day 
watershed management symposium in November, 
1965. Tiie symposium delved into recent New Eng- 
land water shortages and the urgent need to in- 
crease water supplies for public consimiption, and 
featured ihstrudtion by munidfpal cxHioials and 
other professional authorities on watershed nnan- 

Edited by John H. Noyes and Donald L. Ma- 
der, lx>th of the department of forestry and wdld- 
life management, the 84-page report presents the 
symposium's 14 papers and speeches in three sec- 
tions: the role of the forest in quantity of water 
produced, the effect of the forest on the quality 
of water produced, and a final section dealing with 
the need for establishing forest land-use policy on 
lx>th pulxlic and private municipal watersheds. 

"Understanding the forest and its role din en- 

hancing quantity and quality of water >^1*,^ 

Profs. Noyes and Mader write in the foreward. 
"should be a pirereqxiisite to afty watenhed man- 
agement program." ThJa, they say ia because 
much of our water supply oomes from rain and 
snow which falls on forested watershed before it 
enters storage reservoirs later to become avaU- 
eA>Ie for pubkc consumption. 

To promote a better understanding of the 
problem, the symposiium presented Instruction on 
such topics as "Basic Healith Aspects of Water 
Qunlity," "Research Needs in Water Quality Con- 
trol," and "Economic Aspects of Watershed Man- 
agement." Tlie texts of the various lectures, to- 
gether with accompanying graphs, diagrams end 
bibliographic notes are reproduced in the UMass 
publication, entitled, "Proceedings of the Munici- 
pal Watershed Managesnent Symposium."

In Boston waiter? would call Irv- 
ing Fitzlg a fishball. In New 
Orleans they would call him a 
wag; in Kansas City a clutch, and 
in Chicago a lemon, or a snake. 

These are colloquialisms for 
"stiffs," those people who don't 
leave tips. And that's Fitzig. 

Indeed Fitzig is prepared for 
even stronger language of the 
unprintable variety, for he has 
launched a countrywide cam- 
paign to eliminate the custom of 
the gratuity. 

Within the three months since 
the night a waiter in Greenwich 
Village, N. Y. got nasty about 
the size of his tip, the 170-pound 
former paratrooper claims to 
have enrolled 300 members into 
NOTIP. He expects the growth 
to continue at the rate of 100 a 
month. Dues are $1 a year. 

For this sum members receive 
25 small white cards to substitute 
for tips. The card explains that 
NOTIP stands for Nationwide 
Operation to Instill Pride. The 
disappointed waiter or cab driver 
is urged to hand the card to his 
employer to rectify his wage 

Arguing that begging is no way 
to earn a living. Fitzig has no 
compunctions about the plight of 
the untipped. According to the 

deceptively placid public rela- 
tions man. "Cab drivers already 
make a decent living without the 
tips. In New York they get 47 
per cent of what's on the meter." 

Restaurant owners insist that 
if they did pay enough to elimi- 
nate tipping they would have to 
raise their prices to a point where 
most of them would be out of 
business. But Fitzig does not buy 
that argument, pointing to a 
chain of coffee and donut shops 
with a "no tips" policy as proof 
to the contrary. 

In Boston a group called "Tip- 
pers Anonymous" acknowledges 
the gratuity system but battles 
to keep the giving at a IS per 
cent minimum. Fitzig is against 
any tipping to any of the esti- 
mated two million persons in 
this country who earn at least a 
pari of their incomes by such 

With an average of 75 letters 
a day from enthusiastic sup- 
porters. Fitzig is confident that 
the time for action-or nonaction, 
that is-is now. 

"Cab drivers are my worst ex- 
perience." says the crusader. 
"When I hand them my NOTIP 
card they start cussing and call- 
ing me everything until I tell 
them to drive to the nearest 
police station. Then they usually 
shut up."

More than 70 events in the fields of music, dance, 
literature, art and the film are designed to present an ex- 
perience of the familiar and an exposure of the new. All 
are open to the public, many without admission charge. 

The opening event is "Colored Sculpture," an Ameri- 
can Federation of Arts Exhibit of chromatic sculpture on a 
U.S. tour. It will be at the Student Union through June 29. 

The major June event of the festival will be a series of 
performances, workshops and lectures by the nationally- 
known Erick Hawkins and Dance Company June 21 - 23.

Theatre will open July 7 with "A Streetcar Named Desire."

the festival.

lectures or art exhibits. Admission to the film series, dance

Dean Purvis Feted 
At Farewell Party 

One hundred and fifty admin- 
istrators, faculty, staff and 
friends of Dean Albert W. Purvis 
of the University of Massachu- 
setts School of Education ten- 
dered him a retirement party 
recently at the Southwest Dining 

Dr. Raymond Wyman, the 
member of the staff to serve un- 
der Dr. Purvis for the greatest 
number of years, was toast- 

Dr. Wyman iatrodnced the sur- 
prise guests — the family of Dean 
Purvis who had come from Que- 
bec. Canada; Auburn, Maine; 
West Hartford and East Hartford, 
Coim. Several telegrams of good 
wishes were read including one 
from his l>roUier in Charleston, 
W. Va. 

Several guests at the head table 

Sitperintendent Ronald J. Fitz- 
gerald for the Amherst schools; 
Dr. Harold Cary for the Meta- 
wampe club and Evan Johnston 
for the Associate Alumni. Among 
the gifts presented to the dean 
was an autographed football 
from the UMass coaching staff 
and two season tickets to the 
home games. 

A bound book of letters was 
presented to him, one of wtiich 
was from Governor John A. 
Volpe. Other letters were from 
fellow administrators, former fac- 
ulty and staff who had been as- 
sociated with the dean at the Uni- 
vesity, former students who now 
hold Idgh administrative positions 
and others he had in class, pres- 
ent staff and friends. 

The big moment of the evening 
came when an oil portrait of the

Color enables as to follow the 
threads of these new con^lex- 

All the works in this exhibition 
are not complicated in this sense, 
and some are reserved and un- 
dogmatic in their use of color. 
Some employ color in ways that 
have an ancient sanction and that 
demonstrate a permanence which 
contemporaneity does not deny. 

Others extract from color a 
new wit, a new accent or a new 
problem. In certain examples the 
very muteness of the color makes 
a point. The criterion for selec- 
tion in all cases has been that 
color be a crucial element in 
their being.

Goalies Star in North-South Lacrosse Game 

Goalies are a select breed of ca,t. They must be quidt in ac- 
tion and have an overdose of fortitude. Being a goalie is like 
being a musician, you either have it or you don't. You can't 
learn that extra sense a goalie must have to perceive when 
and where the ball is coming from next. In these pictures 
you will see two of the best lacrosse goalies in thie nation, 
you will see why reaction time is so important. Don Robert- 
son, the North's goalie, was voted best player on the field 
that day.

Six Redmen Make All-Yankee 

O'Brien Stars 

Morrone's Marauders Slash 
Southern All-Stars, 7-5 

by JOHN KEIXY, Statesman Editor 

"Joe (Morrone) and I are the only North coaches to win a North-South Lacrosse 
game in the last ten years. We are both University of Massachusetts grraduates so may- 
be there is some coincidence between going to UMass and winning All-Star games," So 
said Lacrosse coadi Dick Garber after watching the North All-Stars beat their Southern 
counterparts 7-5 before a sundrenched crowd of over 5000 avid lacrosse fans. The fans 
represented just about every major lacrosse section of the nation, some traveling as far 
as the Midwest.

Baird, big righthander for the University of Connecticut, were named 
to the all- Yankee Conference baseball tesm, it was amnounced at 
the conference publicity offiioe last week. 

The baltoting, wftiich was done by the coaches of the six New

Packard of Vermont, .295 share ttie first base ix)sition, while Tom 
Proctor of Connecticut, .333, Bill Estey <rf New Hampshire, .269, and 
Frank Stewau-t, Massachusetts, .255, tied for seaond base. 

Joe DiSarcina, the Redmen's flash in basketball as well as the 
diamond, easily gained the shortstop spot while hard-hitting Jack 
Coppolino of Rhode Island was named to the third base position. 
DiSarcina batted .340, while Coppolino hit for .335. 

George Oreer, Corinecticut's sensational Junior who batted .844, 
led the voting for outfield positions. He was followed by Joe Bartlett 
of New Hampsliire, who liit .241, and Ted Mareno of IJMass, .280.

SPRINGFIELD, N.J. W» — ^Arnold Palmer and Julius Boros added

their demands were met by the Professional Golfers Association. 
"We now have every known player on the petition except Bill

now ready for a showdown."

"We now have 150 players on the paper demanding a stronger 
voice in the conduct of the tour," the veteran New York professional, 
a former PGA champron, said after an unsuccessful CMiference with 
PGA officials. 

In a seven-part petition the players are demanding that the PGA 
Executive Committee be deprived of an arbitrary veto and that the 
players be given a right to schedule their own tournaments and hire 
the men who run the show. 

If these requests are not granted by June 15, the players' peti- 
tion said, the touring pros will boycott the PGA National Champion- 
ship, scheduled at Denver, Ctolo., July 20-23. 

The PGA, which has built and 
promoted the tour into a $4.5- 
million enterprise, insists it wiill

goal, me way he twisted tlirough 
those defensemen was a thing of 
beauty. I think UMass was well 
represented on the field." 

The heat was a minor factor in 
the game according to Coach 
Garber. "There definitely was a 
lot more substituting." said Gar- 
ber. "Some of the midfielders 
and attackmen only stayed in the 
game a minute at a time. I was 
wondering when Coach Morrone 
was going to change his goalie. 
As you know every player that is 
picked must play and it was get- 
ting well along in the fourth quar- 
ter before he finally did substi- 
tute Dave Kommalan (Hobart) 
for Don Robertson (Adelphi)." 

Robertson was named Best 
Player for his magnificent job as 
the North's goalie. He made some 
fantastic saves in the first half 
and was helped further by the 
ball hitting the goal post five 
times and bouncing out. The Best 
Player award was selected by 
the sports writers. 

When asked about how the 
Southern players liked the UMass 
campus. Garber said, "they had 
nothing but raves, of course, we 
put on the 'dog' for them but still 
we have one of the finest univer- 
sities in the nation."

VOL. I, NO. 2 


MONDAY, JUNE 19, 1967 

\ i \ ■■ 

Shown addressing the Class of 1971 is Edward C. Moore, Dean of 
the Graduate School. According; to liim, "The particular 'Jam' 
college students get into most often is that which results from a 
confusion over why they came to college." And the confusion 
usually involves their idea of the social life, he added. 

By the people, for the people 

Student Government 
Wheels Begin to Turn 


A second year of student gov- 
ernment at the UMass summer 
session will be in full swing 

Nomination papers are now 
available from the Recognized 
Student Organizations (RSO) of- 
fice. There are four at-large posi- 
tions for each of the eight dormi- 
tories and six openings for com- 

All undergraduates, including 
the summer freshmen, taking one 
course or more, are eligible. 

Four-fifths of the members and 
two officers of the 1966 Summer 
Student Executive Council, as the 
government is called; were swing- 
shift freshmen. 

The 1966 officers were Paul 
Schlosberg 70 — president; John 
"Mike" Lannon '67 — vice presi- 
dent; Ann "Mac" McGunigle '69 
— treasurer; and Caryn Gold- 
berg'70 — secretary. 

While they may not run for 
election regular UMass students 
not taking courses and graduate 
students will be welcomed on the 
committees of the Council as will 
be summer students who do not 
hold office. 

The nomination and election 
dates were announced by the 
University advLsor to the Council 
Lew Gurwitz '68. Gurwitz, a rep- 
resentative to the Student Senate, 
the student government of the 
academic year, is the chairman 
of the UMass Student Communi- 
catiotts Board. 

The first summer government 
wrote a constitution and at-

ances in its role representing the 

Among the real accomplish- 
ments of the body were the ex- 
tension of the woman's curfew, 
extension of library hours and 
adjustment of free-swim hours. 

Other 1966 summer government 
business included the set-up of 
an intramural program of soft- 
ball and basketball teams and 
a successful social event, Las 
Vegas Nite. 

One problem the SSEC took 
on late in its proceedings was 
support of a petition circulated 
at the eleventh - hour by swing 
shifters. "The petition . . . was 
originally started in a move to 
gain admittance to football 
games. . . The intent, if not its 
wording, is to allow swing-shift- 
ers to pay an equivalent athletic 
and activities fee. . . and receive 
an 'I.D.' The card hoped for 
would admit the holder to all 
free-with- I.D. UMass events. 

Unfortunately Council effort for 
the petition came too late for its 
realization. But recourse to stu- 
dent government had obviously 
been valued by new UMass stu- 

This summer, giving due to the 
wishes of the 1966 Council, the 
woman's curfew follows that of 
the regular year, hbrary hours 
are longer, and a unified progam 
of athletics is being offered. 

In addition the SSEC has been 
budgeted a larger sum of money 
to appropriate as it judges in 
the best interests of the students.

FORT WALTON BEACH, Fla. GW — "Go Go" dancer Norma 
Jean O'Neal decided it was time to go Friday night when police 
raided the Kitty Kat Konner. 

As a result, late theater goers were startled to see the 18-year- 
old Miss O'Neal, wearing; only tights, pasties and a fish net, sprint- 
ing down Main Street. In' close pursuit were a score of Okaloosa 
County sheriff's deputies and state beverage agents. 

Miss O'Neal, who dances better than she runs, was caught after 
a one-btock chase and returned to the club in handcuffs. She and 
fellow dimcer Lana Kay Coleman, 19, were charged with disorderly 
conduct and were itaken to jadl. 

A deputy at the jail said the girls, both from Dallas, Tex., were 
bedng held on $300 bond each. He also said they had been given 
thenir clothes. 

Frosh Welcomed at 
Summer Convocation 


"For your generation the question for e 
fpr or sprvjint rVf the machine," declared Pea 

Statesman' Editor 

ach individual is whether he will be the mas- 
n of the Graduate School Edward C. Moore. 

Speaking at last night's Freshman Convoca- 
tion, Moore advised the new students to "learn 
Xjo control your brain and to use it." Men, unlike 
machines can think, men can make value judge- 
ments, men can enjoy the five senses, he said. 
Above all else, men can combine a sense of values 
with the ability to think and thus provide leader- 
ship, he asserted. 

"There is much more for a student (today) 
to know," the dean emphasized at the outset of 
his address. Every ten years what the world 
knows of mathematics and science is doubled 
said Moore. 

After six years, half of an engineer's know- 
ledge is obsolete, he continued. Describing his 
own run-in with the "new math" as a parent, 
Moore observed, "Children in the 6th grade are 
now doing things I didn't do in grad school." 

For this reason, the college student must 
spend even gn'eater amounts of time to study- 
ing, said the speaker. 

While the grad school dean didn't pretend to 
describe a solution to the perennial conflicts of 
social and academic life, he expressed his views 
of the situation clearly: 

"You will never again have such a fine op- 
portunity to educate yourself. ... It may be your 
last chance. If you fail this time because you let 
your social life get Ijetween you and this op- 
portunity, ywi won't have it a^ain." 

Moore preceded to outline his philosophy, 
contrasting man and machine: "Because wo can 
think, we have beliefs; because we have beliefs, 
we can make choices; because we can make 
choices, we can make a better world." 

But he warned against a mechanization of 
human beings taking place rather than a hu- 
manizing of the machine. 

Vision and leadership, in the opinion of the 
dean, are among the finest qualities of being 
human. "You must find and make these qualities," 
he told the Class of 1971. 

Moore described Cardinal Newman's concept 
of a liberal education as his own also — it pre- 
pares you "to fill any post with credit and to 
master any subject with facility." "In the process 
of this education, you will learn what it means to 
be a human being and how to treat others as 
human beings," he ended. 

The main address had been preceded by greet- 
ings from Maroon Key Charles Ratner, who serv- 
ed as Convocation chairman, and welcomes from 
the presidents of the Keys and Scrolls. A repre- 
sentative from Arcon, the University guide ser- 
vice, also spoke. He invited the freshmen to take 
advantage of the tours, given by fraternity mem- 
bers selected for the honorary society. 

The Convocation, well-attended despite the 
wekther, ended after a half hour.

Quint Book Honored 

A book by Dr. Howard H. Quint, head of the University of Mas- 
sachusetts history department, has been included on the Saturday 
Review's "Quarter-Century of Milestones" list of publications by 
scholarly that "have altered many aspects of twentieth- 
century civilization and greatly stretched its thought." 

Dr. Quint's book is the 1953 University of South Carolina Press 
publication "TTie Forging of American Socialism: Origins of the 
Modern Movement." The book traces U. S. Socialism from the first 
wave of German immigrants in the 1870's to the founding of the

ReeeKt Study Reveak 

Tke "TypkiJ" UHass Student 

In geographical distribution of in-state students, the University 
of Massachusetts at Amherst closely represents Massachusetts, a 
UMass survey made public today indicates. 

A "typical" UMsm student. In otiier words, Is like a typical 
IffMaachiHetts resident, according to the survey. He Is most lllcely 
to come fronn tiie eastern part of the state, probably lives In a 
nwtropolitaa area, and more than likely comes from a medium- 
sised town within that area. 

TTie survey by the UMass Office of Institutional Studies breaks 
down by home town the 11,081 Massachusetts residents who entered 
the Amherst campus at the beginning of the present academic 
year, separaiting the 9,621 undergraduates and 1,460 graduates. 

Dividing east aaid west by a line drawn west of Worcester, the 
survey finds that 61.2 per cent or 6,784 reside in eastern Massachu- 
sertts. A separate figure for undergraduates increases the figure 
to 65.7 per cent or 6,322. 

TTie figure for graduate students goes against the trend. Only 
31.6 per cent or 462 live in eastern Massachusetts. This is because 
nearly half of all UMass graduate students are married and main- 
tain their own residences near the Amherst campus, according 
to the survey. 

This last fact Is cited by the survey In listing figures for in- 
dhidual cities and towns. The five with the heaviest representation 

Constitutional Reform Hopes 
''All but Extinguished" by House 

Associated Press Writer 

BOSTON (^ — Any chance of 
Massachusetts voters getting ma- 
jor proposals for changes in their 
constitution from the current 
legislature is all but extinguished. 

In six sessions of joint work 
going back to May II, the House 
and Senate have killed most of 
the big issues. 

Gubernatorial disability and a 
graduated income tax-neither a 
new proposal to Massachusetts- 
are the chief items ready for 
voter action next year. 

But one clear picture has 
emerged from the constitutional 
sessions: the lawmakers don't 
want any tinkering with the legis- 

am oa g a l l stu de n t s are Springfield,^WlrAmherst,"470; Boston, 386; ^ative^ setup they now enjoy, ex- 

Newton, 812; and Worcester and Northampton, 299 each. The 
presence of Amherst and Northampton in this group is largely be- 
cause the majority of married students attending the University 
reside in these communities. 

Among undergraduaites, five of the same six communities are 
heavily represented but in slightly different order: Springfield, 382; 
Boston, 343; Amherst, 310; Newton, 289; and Worcester, 274. 

1\\e eight metropolitan areas of the Oommonwealth are defined 
by the 1957 state census damdnate in-state enrollment figures at 
the Amherst campus, providing 65.5 per cent or 7,252 students as a- 
gaifist 34.5 per cent or 3,829 from non-metropolitan areas. Repre- 
sentation from metropolitan areas is even higher for undergraduates, 
going to 67 per cent. 

The five leading metropolitan areas in terms of representation 
amone; all students are Boston, 33.6 per cent; Sprlngfield-Holyoke, 
18.1 per cent; Worcester, 5.3 per cent; Brockton, 2.3 per cent; 
aad lAwrenoe, 1.7 per cent. 

In analyzing all students by nine categories of size of home 
town, tthe survey finds that the majority come &T>m the middle 
ranges: 31 per cent from communities between 10,000 and 24,999; 
18.1 per cent from those between 50,000 and 99,999; and 17.5 per 
cent from those between 25,000 and 49,999. 

Within the total in^state ennollment at Amherst, 329 or 93.7 
pa- cent of the Commonwealth's 351 cities and towns are repre- 
sented by one or more residents. At the undergraduate level, 327 
or 93.2 per cent are represented. 

In an analysrils of county representation of total in-state stu- 
dents, Middlesex leads with 18.7 percent and Hampden is next with 
14.4 per cent. The other leading counties ai^ Hampshire, 11.5 per 
cent; Worcester, 11.4 per cent; and Norfolk, 10.1 per cent. 

Listing the county representation figures for undergraduates, 
the survey finds the following: Middlesex, 20.1 per cent; Hampden, 
13 per cent; Worcester, 12.1 per cent; Norfolk, 11 per cent; and 
Hampshire, 9.4 per cent. 

The totals include 485 two-year Stockbridge School students. 
The survey was compiled by Raymond Castelpoggi, assistant director 
of the Office of Institutional Studies. 

Chenoweth Fire 
Confined to Lab 

by Chet Weinerman, 
'Statesman' Editor-in-Chief 

A burned out transformer is 
the suspected cause of a Friday 
morning fire that raged in Chen- 
oweth Hall. 

At approximately 7:25 a.m. an 
unidentified custodian noticed 
smoke emanating from a third 
floor laboratory and sounded an 
alarm to the Amherst Fire De- 
partment. The fire department 
was able to extinguish the danger 
in about one hour. The amount of 
damage is as yet undetermined, 
but sections of the lab and some 
equipment therein are reportedly 
damaged. Although the fire itself 
was confined to the lab itself, 
smoke enveloped the entire build- 

According to some sources, the 
fire could have been a grave di- 
saster; the many volatile chemi- 
cals in Chenoweth Hall made real 
the possibilities of an explosion, 
which could have caused exten- 
sive damage and injury. How- 
ever, the lab had no windows 
through which fresh oxygen could 
pass, and this was said to be a 
major factor in the lack of any 
serious explosion. 

cept to give themselves the op- 
tion of a 30-day vacation. 

They also don't want any 
threat to potential political ad- 
vantage through county govern- 
ment oi the executive council. 

A majority of legislators want 
professional lawmakers, free to 
take as much time as they think 
needed on the process of creating 
laws, able to recess up to 30 days 
if they choose and free to keep 
responsibility for such things as 
straightening out legislative dis- 
trict lines. 

This differs from the idea some 
political scientists value of a 
citizen general court, responsive 
to constituents but working only 
part-time and as speedily as pos- 
sible on necessary laws.

land, after the first Atlantic 
crossing by a steamship. 

On this date-

Roanoke, Va., ending the first 
settlement of the Engttsh in 

In 1754, a congress of seven 
American colonies was held in 
Albany, N. Y., to discuss union 
for defense. 

In 1867, Emperor Maximilian 
of Mexico was executed by the 
rebel, Benito Juarez. 

In 1934. the U. S. Congress

and emergency matters, to 
shrink the two legislative branch- 
es to one and to allow the gover- 
nor to name the state treasurer 
and secretary. 

Proposals for four-year terms 
for state senators and to abolish 
the executive council and county 
government also were defeated. 

The idea of lowering the voting 
age from 21 to 18 had the ap- 
proval of the Democratic leader- 
ship, but lost. Instead, age 19 
won initial approval. 

The proposal to let the legisla- 
ture set the rules for taxing busi- 
nesses and homes at different 
rates lost to a proposal to let 
cities and towns make their own 

The voting aud tax changes 
must win final am^roval this year 
and next before they can go on 
ballots for a verdict by voters. 

The concept of a gubernatorial 
disability provision has been 
sporadically proposed for years, 
chiefly since the 1950's when ill- 
ness hit then-President Dwight D. 

The idea of a graduate income 
tax based on the federal levy 
also has been brought up often, 
and backers say it would be good 

for taxpayers and tax collectors 

The graduated income tax 
amendment has received ap- 
proval for the second time from 
the constitutional convention and 
it, too, will appear on the ballot 
next year. A similar proposal 
was rejected by voters in Nov- 
ember, 1962. by a 5-1 margin. 

The joint sessions gave initial 
approval to a proposal for 
streamlining the rules on re- 
drawing the lines of legislative 
and council districts. 

But lawmakers rejected the 
bid of Rep. Mary B. Newman, 
R-Cambridge. to have the redis- 
tricting done by a citizens' com- 

Instead, they approved the 
move of the House majority lead- 
er. Rep. Robert H. Quinn, D - 
Boston, to have the legislature 
do the job every 10 years. If it 
failed to finish by mid-June a 
special nine-member commission 
would do it. 

One of the key provisions in 
the rules would limit each dis- 
trict to one representative. Dis- 
tricts would be based on precints 
of 2,500 voters.

To all Summer Students and Swing Shift Freshmen: 

In a recent STATESMAN interview, Dr. Venman, the director of the UMass Summer Session, 
said, ''I can't imagine closing down for twelve weeks/' 

We can't imagine it either. With 6000 students registered on campus this summer, it can no 
longer be said that school lets out in June-except for some borderline freshmen and a few under- 
achieved uppe'rclassmen. The University of Massachusetts is a full-time operation. 

Because campus activity does not stop, it was felt that the' high quality of news coverage to 
which UMass students have become accustomed similarly should not cease. 

To put out a quality newspaper, however, 
requires a staff of willing people. You do not 
necessarily hove to be a great writer to be on 
asset to a good college paper; in fact, many 
aspects of newspaper work do not involve any 
writing. Copy editing, interviewing, advertis- 
ing, and page make-up are some other areas 
where anyone con find a valuable place to 
serve on his college paper. It is willing people 
who moke a paper a good, quality newspaper. 

The rewards for working on the STATES- 
MAN ore great. The people you meet, the 
things you get to know first, the practical ex- 
perience, and the knowledge that you ore per- 
forming vital function moke the STATES- 
MAN a worthwhile activity as well as giving 
you an individual feeling of belonging, of be- 
ing a part of the campus. 

If you would like to help "put the 
STATESMAN to bed", we would like very 
much to meet you — especially if you are a 
freshman or a sophomore. There will be an or- 
ganizational meeting TONIGHT at 6:30 p.m. 
in the STATESMAN office (Collegian winter 
office), second floor. Student Union 

We sincerely hope to see you there.

Pickers" Play. 

Softball and Basketball Highlight 
Summer intramurals 



U M M £ R 

by JOHN KELLY, 'Statesman' Editor 

The summer school intramural program will get underway this week with softball^ 
starting Thursday and basketball the following week on June 26th. Changes have been 
made this year which will allow more individual recognition. No longer will it be just a 
team effort; now, there are provisions made for individual trophies. Instead of just the 
top two teams vying for the overall league championship at the end of the summer ses- 
sion, it will now be the top four team in a play-off type series. No longer does a team 
have to finish first to be considered for a play-off berth. ^ 

Plans are being made for another ttenefit game between the 
UMass sunnmer school All-Stars and a groi^) of players made up of 
Mississippi tobacco pickers who work In the Connecticut Valley 
during the summer. The "pickers" were victorious last year over 
the All-Stars. 

Again this year there will be an administrative team coanprised 
of some of -the more prominately athletic administrators on cam- 
pus: Lou Gurwitz, RSO; Ernie BeaJs, admissito'ns; Jim West, food 
service; Bert Freeman, counceling office are but a few of the slug- 
gers on the team. Mai O'Sullivan, intramural coordinator emd also 
a member of the team, offered this challenge to the summer stu- 
dents, "We won the league last year and we'll be trying again to 
-put the summer school kids in place." 

Coach Sohmdlt, intramural director at the Men's Physical Ed- 
ucation Office, has given a great smiount of help to the summer 
program. All an individual must supply is a glove for softball and 
regular gym gear for basketball. All other equipment will be 
furnished toy the men's PE department. 

The most impK>rtant part of the program must be supplied by 
the summer students and that is initiative to form the rosters need- 
ed. Mai O'Sullivan is hoping that groups of men who already know 
each other will form teams. That way there wall be some team co- 
ordination already established. For other individuals who haven't 
met anyone on campus yet but would still like to play, they are 
requested to come to the RSO Office, second floor of the Student 
Union, and sign up. As soon as there is a complete team, the mem- 
bers will be notified and their names put on a team roster. For 
Individuals who already have a team din mond, they are also re- 
quested to go to the RSO Office and sign up their teams. 

Ck>mnrmter8 have alwajrs formed a major part of the intra- 
nniral program and it is hoped again this year that they will form 
a team. Last year's team was a stand-mit, vying for top honors be- 
fore failing to defeat at the hands of the Dean's team. Contmuters are 
asked to contact the RSO Office and place their names on a roster. 

All games will be played at night so there will be no conflict 
with classes. Every individual should take it upon himself 
to participate in some sort of physical activity. 

(If the Sunmter Statesman can find enough volunteers to work 
on the paper, we might try to form a team. Unfortunately it is 
rather hard to play aoftball with only three people. Drop by the 
office tonight, there is plenty of physical exertion in putting out a 
first class summer newspaper . . . we are students, too and we need

Peace Vigil in Amherst 
Continues Thru Summer 

by JANE ROLAND, 'Statesman' Reporter 

Walk into Amherst any Sunday between 12:00 and 1:00. 

Standing quietly around the Amherst Town Common will be a 
group of people gathered for a weekly Vigil for Peace in Vietnam. 

No one speaks, but occasionally a young boy walks along the 
sidewalk in front of theT Vigil with a large bouquet of dandelions, 
and offers one to each participant. 

The silence is impressive — particularly when viewed for the 
first time. 

The Amherst Town Silent Vigil was originally called by the Am- 
herst-Mt. Toby Friends' Weekly Meeting Group for Dec. 4, 1966. 

Since then, (every Sunday) well over 200 people have gathered 
to express their regret for those dying in Vietnam. 

There are no picket signs, for it is not a demonstration. It is a 
Witness for Peace, a Quaker Witness which is ended every week 
with each person shaking the hand of his neighbors when the 
town clock strikes 1:00. 

Erick Hawkins, shown here in 
a pose called "Darkness at 
Noon," will lecture today at 3 
p.m. at Bowker and will give a 
performance at 8 p.m. Tomor- 
row he will give 10 a.m. work- 
shop and an evening perform- 
ance, also at Bowker. 

Hawkins Lectures 
On Modern Dance 


'Statesman' Reporter 

Erick Hawkins, the first pro- 
fessional modem dancer to per- 
form on the University of Massa- 
chusetts campus, presented a 
miaster cleiss at the Woman's 
Physical Education building on 
Wednesday morning. 

This is the first of a series of 
lectures, workshops, and perfor- 
mances to be given by Mr. Haw- 
kins and his company. The series 
opens the Summer Arts Festival 
here on campus. Lucia Dlugos- 
zewski, composer - collaborator 
with Mr. Hawkins for many 
years is also featured. 

Students of the University and 
guests participated in exploring 
the principles of movement which 
govern Mr. Hawkins' theory of 
nrHklern dance. Those who parti- 
cipated or observed the class 
tiave gained insight into the 
foundation for the art which they 
will see in performance tonight 
and tomorrow night at Bowker 
Auditorium at 8:00 p.m. 

Appearing in the Hawkins 
Company are Dena Madole, Be- 
verly Hirschfeld, James Tyler, 
and Kelly Holt. The dances to be 
seen in tonight's performance are 
Cantiliver, John Brown, Geogra- 
phy of Noon, and Early Floating. 
Tomorrow night's program in- 
cludes Cantiliver, Eight Clear 
Places and Early Floating.

"Same Old Story" 

Upperclass Apathy Poses 
Threat to Student Council 


Who are going to be elected to 
serve on the Summer Student 
Executive Council from John 
Adams and John Q. Adams is a 
good question. Among the swing- 
shift men, 16 have taken out 
nomination papers and 13 have 
among the women. In each house, 
there are four Council seats. 

But neither the six upperclass 
dormitories nor the commuters 
had enough candidates to fill the 
remaining seats, as of press 
time. There were only 18 stu- 
dents seeldng signatures for the 
30 openings. 

Members of the 1966 Council. 
Ann "Mac" McGunigle and Dave 
Bartholomew and members of 
the 1966-67 Student Senate. Burt 
Freedman and Gail Palmer are 
in the running for election to the 
1967 summer government. Miss 
McGunigle and Freedman were 
the treasurers of the respective 

Besides Freedman, three others 
are running for the commuter 
positions: Buddy Vaughan '70 — 
West Springfield. Jeff Timm "69 
— Leverett, and David H. Clarke 
'68 — Florence. 

The low turnout among upper- 
classmen can probably be ac- 
counted for by the feeling that 
summer school is not a regular 
semester and the absence of pub- 
licity during the previous se- 
mester. Such was the opinion of 
former Student Senate President 
John Greenquist '67 in a States- 
man interview. 

While acknowledging that "It's 
the same old story during the 
regular year." Greenquist ex- 
pressed the belief that more 
would be involved if they knew 
what the summer government 
was all about. 

"The biggest problem." he 
continued, was lack of knowledge 
of what it can be doing and what 
it should be doing." 

Statesman' Editor 

There are probably academic 
grievances, he said. "But I 
don't know what they are," said 
Greenquist. "These kids live 

"Academic matters which we 
really didn't go into last sum- 
mer" were also suggested as a 
concern for the Council by last 
year's SSEC President Paul 

The former officer went on to 
call attention to the lack of room 
telephones and the difficulties 
which would be connected with 
service for three and six week 

Schlosberg recommended that 
the office of president be filled 
by an upperclassman with ex- 
perience in parliamentary pro- 
cedure — neither of which condi- 
tions he met. 

"The Summer Student Execu- 
tive Council and its members 
must fill the leadership void 
which exists because of the re- 
duced scale of summer activi- 
ties," he emphasized. 

Raymond Castelpoggi 
Dies Suddenly at UM 

Raymond C. Castelpoggi, Z9, of 
27 Crescent St., died suddenly 
Monday in the University of 
Massachusetts Infirmary. 

He was assistant director in 
the office of institutional studies 
at UMass., and had been em- 
ployed on the staff there since 

Castelpoggi was born in New 
York City, the son of Mrs. and 
the late Charles J. Castelpoggi. 
He was a graduate of Bates Col- 
lege, and received his master's 
degree from Boston University. 

He leaves his mother, Mrs.

Hampshire College Reports Steady Progress 

Thje "good neighbor policy" 
is great for everybody: not 
only the houseware needing 
the proverbial cup of sugar 
but, much more, for the new 
college striving mig^htily to 
establish a quality institution 
at minimum cost — long before 
it has a full-time faculty and 

Hampshire's official staff is 
small ( ten in all, counthig full- 
time personnel) but its efforts 
plus those orf these able con- 
sultants make a winning ccrni- 
bination. The latter, who are 
some of the most able and 
outstanding p>eople in the 
country in their particular 
areas, are working many hours 
to develop Hampshire plan- 
ning. They are presently carry- 
ing on many of the functions 
which will be taken over by 
the faculty and administrative 
staff after the new coMege be- 
comes a going concern. 

On the administrative side, 
one good neighbor is Otto 
Kohler, business manager, 
assistant treasurer and super- 
intendent of buildings and 
grounds at Mount Holyoke 

College. Mr. Kohler is consult 
ing with Hampshire adminis- 
trators on the financing of 
college facilities through fed- 
eral loans and grants. 

Another is C. Van R. Halsey, 
associate dean of admissions 
and assissant professor of 
American history at Amherst 
College. Drawing on his ex- 
perience in the first capacity, 
Mr. Halsey is advising the new 
liberal arts college on formu- 
lating its admissions policy. 
Assistance is also available 
from Amherst College itself; 
Hampshire is currently pur- 
chasing accounting services 
from its long-established neigh- 

Roger W. Holmes, chairman 
of the department of philos- 
ophy at Mount Holyoke Col- 
lie, served earlier as a mem- 
ber of the 1966 four-college 
advisory committee which was 
responsible for the educational 
design on which some of the 
curriculum proposals in The 
Making of a College were 
based. He Is now consulting 
regularly, on a part-time basis, 
on the School of Language 

Studies at Hampshire. 

Among the distinguished 
teachers and experts partici- 
pating in a conference on the 
arts and humanities at Hamp- 
shire were five faculty mem- 
bers from nearby colleges: C. 
L. Barber, this year a visiting 
professor of Englisih language 
and literature at Smith College 
(on leave from the University 
of Indiana where he is chair- 
man of the department of 
Englisih; Mrs. Rosalind E>e- 
Mille, associate professor of 
physical education and dance 
at Smith; Vernon D. Gotwals, 
chairman, department of music. 
Smith; Edward J. Hill, assist- 
ant professor of art. Smith; 
and Robert Shoenberg, assist- 
ant professor of English, Wil- 
liams College. Professor Sho- 
enberg, who prepared the de- 
tailed report on this confer- 
ence, is another Hamjpshire 
consultant, on a continuing 
basis, concerned with develop- 
ment of the arts and human- 

Professor Barber was a 
member of the* four-ooOegre 
committee which drew up The 

New College Plan in 1958. 
This Plan, proposing a new 
institution in the Connecticut 
Valley and outlining an aca- 
demic program which would 
provide quality education at 
the lowest possible cost, was, 
ultimately, the impetus for the 
Hampshire College proposal. 

Five professors from the 
four-college area attended the 
January planning conference 
on the projected science pro- 
gram and have consulted with 
Hampshire. They are Alice B. 
Dickinson, associate professor 
of mathematics at Smith; 
Anna Jane Harrison, professor 
of chemistry. Mount Holyoke; 
Robert L. Gluckstem, chair- 
man odf the department of 
physics. University of Massa- 
chusetts; Robert B. Whitney, 
professor of chemistry, Am- 
herst; Henry T. Yost* Jr., pro- 
fessor of biology, Amherst. 

A score of librarians and 
communications experts 
have been Involved in an - 
other vital aspect of Hamp- 
shire planning — its library. 
Those attending a conference 
on design of the Hampshire 

library last January included 
David M. Clay, acting director 
of libraries, University of 
Massachusetts; Anne C. Ed- 
monds, librarian, Mount Hol- 
yoke; Professor Holmes; Mar- 
garet L. Johnson, librarian, 
Smith; and Charles T. Laugh- 
er, acting director, the Robert 
Frost Library, Amherst Col- 

Two other men, not in the 
immediate vicinity, are on the 
list of active consultants: Carl 
F. J. Overhage, director. Pro- 
ject INTREX (Coordinated 
Program of Information Trans- 
fer Experiments); and Robert 
S. Taylor, currently the direc- 
tor of the Center for the In- 
formation Sciences, Lehigh 
University, to become director 
of the Hampshire library, ef- 
fective September 1, 1967. 

The list of consultants is a 
long one — ^but so is the list of 
things that have to be done. 
In this instance many hands 
cannot make light work, but 
they can, and are, helping to 
complete the work of making 
Hampshire College a reality 
in time to meet the scheduled 
opening date.

DeGaulle Links 
Two Wars to U.S. 


PARIS UFi — President Charles 
de Gaulle linked the Arab-Israeli 
war to the Vietnamese conflict 
Wednesday and declared that un 
less the United States gave up 
the fight in Southeast Asia, there 
was no hope for world peace. 

Departing from the middle-of- 
the-road policy France had fol- 
towed since the Middle East 
crisis erupted, De Gaulle put the 
blame on Israel for firing first 
in the brief war against the Arab 
states. But he went back to Viet- 
nam for the underlying cause. 

De Gaulle seemed to be aim- 
ing at a package deal for world 

In a strong statement issued 
after a Cabinet meeting, De 
Gaulle said the Vietnamese war 
which he asserted was touched 
off by U.S. intervention— also led 
Communist China to hurry along 
its hydrogen bomb, which it 
tested last Saturday. 

The war, started in Vietnam 
by American intervention, can 
not help but spread trouble, not 
only there but far away." De 
Gaulle said. "From that came 
the attitude of China and the 
speed up of its armament. From 
that came the psychological and 
political process which led to the 
fight in the Middle East." 


Frosh Lead Campus 

It has been heartening for us to see the tremendous 
response of the Class of 1971 to the various programs of 
the Summer Session. Although they have only been on 
campus a few days, the Freshmen have demonstrated a 
spirit unparalleled to any we have ever seen on campus. 

Initial Frosh participation in the formation of house 
and school governments has been outstanding. The men of 
John Adams have already finished a first draft of their con- 
stitution. House positions in both Adams houses are being 
hotly contested for and won by fully competent people. 

Many teams have been entered for the Intramural pro- 
gram, and, at least from the initial reaction, it looks to be 
a successful summer athletically. 

Quiet hours have been carefully observed, and it 
prompts one to think back about a year; the contrast is 
most striking. The Class of 1971, in its first week, stands 
out quite favorably. 

It is also interesting to note that the upperclass houses 
are finding it difficult even to find students to run for house 
and school offices. The men who are supposed to lead are 
shirking their responsibility. Age is supposed to bring on 
wisdom, not apathy. 

But, after seeing how the Freshmen have responded, 
perhaps it will be for the best if, when the Executive Coun- 
cil is convened, it is ruled mostly by Freshmen. They may 
well be the most active student leaders the University has 
ever had.

AMA Adopts Liberal 
Policy Favoring Abortions 


The American Medical Associa- 
tion, breaking a 97-year silence, 
adopted Wednesday a liberal of- 
ficial policy on abortion. 

The policy, adopted with a 
minimum of opposition, goes 
much further than the vast ma- 
jority of states which permit 
abortion only to save the life of 
the mother. 

The AMA favors abortion also 
when pregnancy is the result of 
rape or incest, threatens the 
mental or physical health of the 
mother, and when the infant 
would be born with incapacitat- 
ing physical deformities or men- 
tal deficiencies. 

Three states-Colorado, North 
Carolina and California — have 
abortion laws similar to the 
policy adopted by the AMA. 

Abortion reform laws have 
been introduced in 20 other state 
legislatures, but have created 
political controversies in a num- 
ber of these states. 

The AMA explained: "Rather 
than recommending changes in 
state laws, the American Medical 
Association should adopt its own 
statement of position which can 
be used as guide for component 
and constituent medical societies 
in stales contemplating legisla- 
tive reform." 

Abortion has long been a 
dilemma for physicians. The 
AMA said that approximately 
10,000 abortions are performed 
in hospitals each year. "Few of 
these are necessary to save the 
mother's life," it added. 

"American medicine is there- 
fore confronted with a situation 
whereby conscientiouN practi- 
tioniTs piTforminjf therapeutic 
abortions for reasons other than 
those po.sing; a direct threat to 

the life of the mother are acting 
contrary to existing laws." 

The policy was introduced in 
1965, but not acted upon until 
last Sunday when the board of 
trustees recommended its adop- 

The 14-page report said the 
Roman Catholic Church opposes 
abortion under any circum- 
stances, adding, "The committee 
respects the right of this group 
to express and practice its be- 

"However, the committee be- 
lieves that physicians who hold 
other views should t>e legally 
able to exercise sound medical 
judgment which they and their 
colleagues feel to be in the best 
interest of the patient."

Simulated classroom experi- 
ence, in the form of faculty lec- 
tures on topics ranging from 
Botany to Race Relations, is now 
a part of the Summer Orientation 
Program for Freshmen. 

The lecture series, according 
to Mrs. Lois Frey, student activ- 
ities program advisor, Is designed 
to, "provide freshmen with a 
taste of what it's like to be In a 
class in college." The lectures, 
which are scheduled on the sec- 
ond day of the orientation pro- 
gram, normally attract about 50 

Lecturing on the riots in Rox- 
bury last week. Dr. Robert Stan- 
feld feels that the series does 
more to introduce the student to 
a college professor rather than 
to a classroom situation. 

"The high school senior", ex- 
plained Dr. Stanfeld, "comes 
here for three or four days, but 
has no real contact with faculty 
members. These lectures allow 
the student to become acquainted 
with the type of person and the 
manner of instruction that he 
will work with during his time 

"Freshmen, according to Dr. 
Stanfeld, "are apprehensive 
about the college professor. This, 
of course is natural. The lecture 
series can relax freshmen appre- 
hension, and for this reason Is 
an excellent addition to the coun- 
seling program." 

The lecture series is optional, 
and the student must choose be- 
tween it and several other pro- 
grams during the second day of 
the orinetation session.

Faculty Senate Needs Secretary 

Anyone want to be the Secre- 
tary of the Faculty Senate? With 
the expiration of the term of of- 
fice of David R. Mayhew, assist- 
ant professor of government, 
the post has been vacant since 
the last meeting in May. 

For the summer, the Chairman 
of the Faculty Senate Rules Com- 
mittee, George R. Richason, pro- 
fessor of chemistry, will act as 
Interim Secretary. 

At the last meeting, the Nomi- 
nating Committee reported that 
it had not been able to find any- 
one for the job. "A number of 
persons were asked to run for 
the office;" the report stated. 

"All but one refused. . . .the time 
commitment involved was a ma-

The one individual who agreed 
to run made it conditional on the 
lack of any other candidate. The

UAA Students Spend 
Summer in Europe 

by PAT PETOW. 'Statesman' Editor 

Vacations are dreams of many U Mass students. 

Some, however, really go. This summer about 400 will combine 
the tourist and student experience at four UMass institutes abroad. 
These include Oxford, Bologna, Madrid, and Freiburg. 

Diane Chase '68, a nursing: major from E. Providence, R.I., how- 
ever, belongs to an even more select group of students who have gone 
abroad: those who are doing the continent on their own. Traveling 
with her is CufFy (Catherine) Chase also from E. Providence and 
a senior at Syracuse University. 

The mode of travel is by car, the overnight accommodation is 
by sleeping bag and tent. 

The two Chases — who are not related except in friendship — 
have been planning their trip for approximately a year. The final itin- 
erary of 12 countries, including tiny Liechtenstein, is the result of re- 
luctantly cutting back on the original Grand Tour they plotted. 

Spain and Ireland, for example, were leliminated despite Diane's 
wish to test her language "proficiency" in regard to the former and 
despite her roommate's \iews in regard to the latter. 

As they grow sophisticated in the intricacies of European travel, 
the coeds will probably review, somewhat bemused, the hectic mo- 
ments before takeoff. The plane's departure was delayed twice. The 
baggage was checked in, seats selected, the last Coke drunk, good- 
byes said, the plane boarded. 

Then there had been the year before: the day their parents said 
OK, the day the maps came, the day the passports came, the day 
the foot-locker was sent. 

There were so many details to attend to, so many whom they 
dould share the planning with. Now there is so much to see, to re- 
member, to photograph, to tell about when they return, to sh£u:e 
with those who are now planning trips or who soon will. 

It wasn't a dream at all. 

tions and responsibilities inherent 
in the position ... the Senate 
should not be without a chief fac- 
ulty officer." 

Among the responsibilities of 
the Secretary — who is elected 
from among the Faculty Senators 
—are compiling and publishing 
agendas and minutes. lists of 
members, minutes of committees, 
and serving on the Rules Com- 
mittee of the Senate. 

"By virtue of his position as 
the chief elected oficial of the 
Senate, many other tasks have 
fallen to the Secretary." The re- 
port noted. 

He coordinates and in large 
measure directs the activities of 
the Standing and Ad Hoc Com- 
mittees; he is responsible for lay- 
ing substantive items of business 
on the table of the Senate, serves 
as parliamentarian, is the chief 
liaison with officials of the Cen- 
tral Administration and with 
faculty members who are not 
Senators, and serves as informa- 
tion officer. ..."

Boys State is sponsored by the 
American Legion and other sim- 
ilar service organizations, such 

as the Rotary Club and the Elks. 
The participants in Boys State, 
this year numbering a record 
580, are selected locally and to 
be considered for selection must 
be a junior in the upper third of 
his class. 

To achieve the program's pur-

Britain jolted Israel Wednesday 
with a warning against claiming 
all of Jerusalem as a prize of

Commandoes, will grace the fields of intramural play. The Commandoes are coached by

Clay Loses Case 

HOUSTON (AP) — Cassius Clay, as talkative as ever, 
formally appealed his five-year prison sentence Wednesday 
and said he is still the heavyweight champion of the world 
and could whip anybody. 

Shadowboxing and joking in the Federal Building" cor- 
ridors and elevators, Clay appeared unconcerned about his 
conviction Tuesday on a charge of refusing to be inducted 
into the armed services. In addition to the prison sentence, 
U.S. Dist. Judge Joe Ingraham fined Clay $10,000. 

"Regardless of a man's religion or his politics, you just can't 
ignore he's the champion," Clay told newsmen. "I am the best. I 
can whip them all. They all know I'm the champ." Hayden Cov- 
ington of New York City and Quinnan Hodges of Houston, Clay's 
attorneys, filed the notice of appeal to the 5th Circuit Court at 
New Orleans, La., and renewed the champion's $5,000 bond which 
he had posted May 8 following his indictment. 

Clay refused to take the traditional one step forward to be 
inducted into the Army April 28. He was reluctant to discuss 
the case with newsmen Wednesday but was eager to talk about 
his fighting abilit)'. 

"You can't just close your eyes 
to the fact I am the best," Clay 
said. He placed his hands over 
his eyes to emphasize the point. 

"I don't care what they say or 
what's on paper, I am still the 
best," he added. 

When Clay first posted his 
bond after his indictment, Fed- 
eral Judge Ben C. Connally said 
requests to travel outside the 
I'nited States would have to be 
ruled on separately. 

There had been reports Clay 
hoped to fight in August and 
September in Sweden and Ger- 
many. / 

"I am not even thinking about 
it now," was Clay's only com- 

An all-white jury of six men 
and six women deliberated only 
20 minutes Tuesday in finding 
Clay guilty. Clay had claimed 
he was a Black Muslini minister 
with the name Muhammad Ali 
and should have been draft 
e.xempt. His attorneys also con- 
tcjided draft boards were 
stacked with white members and 
therefore discriminated against 

Covington indicated the final 
outcome will be determined by 
the Supreme Court but he said 
such a decision is at least 18 
months away.

There has been a big rush to join the admunistration team, so it 
looks like last year's winners are preparing to defend their title at all 
costs. Some of the newest members that have been added to the ros- 
ter are: Jerry Scanlon, RSO; Dave Cannamala and Bill Lasher, Book 
Store; John Siegrist, Placement and Financial Aid; Dom Gieras, 
freshman orientation councilor. Two beautiful and talented cheer- 
leading substitutes from RSO are Lois Frey and Sheila McRevey. 

The summer athletes will have the benefits of e.xcellent referee- 
ing as Jim Sonn and Don Tognierl lead the field-marshaling brigade. 
Along with the well /qualified refereeing goes well laid out playing 
fields, which includes liming after every game. 

As was mentioned in last Monday's Statesman, equipment is fur- 
nished, but only for authorized competition games. Equipment for 
practice must be the individuals and must not be from the Men's 
Physical Education Department. 

An interesting feature about the night lighting is that it is the 
same wattage as that used in Fenway Park. This added feature will 
assure unity among the different playing fields located near Boyden 

The practice game being held this evening will afford an oppor- 
tunity for individuals to get to know each other. Coaches should give 
their players position assignments after watching them practice. 

Basketball will start next week in Boyden Gym. It will also be 
refereed by Jim Sonn and Don Tognieri. Each team must furnish ei- 
ther a timekeeper or a scorekeeper like in regular season play. There- 
fore, a team must have at least six members and they must attend 
all games. 

Locker room facilities will be furnished by the Men's Physical 
Education Department after every basketball game for the indi- 
viduals assigned to the team and who show up for the games.

Campus Hosts Hawkins 


The studio is empty, the stage is struck, and the dancers have 
gone. For three days, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, the campus 
hosted Erick Hawkins and his dance company, with Lucia Dlugos- 
zemski his composer-collaborator. 

Students, faculty and guests, were offered insight into an art- 
ists' life — Erick Hawkins, dancer. He explained his goals as an artist 
to the participants of the two classes, to the audience of the lecture 
and open rehearsal. 

Janet Craft '68, whose major course of study is danc4>, had the 
following to say about the events: "It was stimulating and refresh- 
ing to come face to fac« with an artist who has defined his principles 
and goals and is able to express them." 

Nancy Bergsma '68, siunmed up her reactions as follows: "It 
was a philosophical awakening for me — ^^having an artist express Jind 
explain his art through his speeches and then through his per- 

The open reharsal provided rare opportunities to the performers 
as well as to the audience. Prior to his appearance here, Hawkins 
has seldom been provided stage rehearsal time, with an audience in 
attendance, before the concert. Thus it was an unusual experience 
for the concert viewers to hear a professional dancer expound on 
his art. 

Hawkins said that in his art dance is most often presented in 
its first function — dance for the sake of the movement alone. He ex- 
plained further that the movements cooperate with gravity and thus 
the body can move in its most natural and beautiful way. 

The audience watched the dancers warm their bodies through 
specially designed techniques, as Hawkins explained why they did 
those specific techniques. They also watched the dancers solve the 
spatial problems of a new theatre, as Miss Dlugoszewskis' music 
opened new passages of sound for most of the audience. 

The two concerts included five of Hawkins' dances. The overall 
portrait presented was one of figures moving through space in simple 
designs created by easy, clearly flowing, fluid bodies. 

The dances seemed to accomplish the choreographers vision. The 
dancers performed the movements with conviction, the costumes en- 
hanced the design of the dances, and the music blended to the total 
harmony of the dance. Thus, total theatre resulted.

UM Starts 
Credit Union 


The first organizational meet- 
ing of the University of Massa- 
chusetts Employees Credit Union 
will be held Monday, June 26. 

The meeting will start at 7:30 
p.m. in the Mahar Auditorium. 
The purposes of this meeting are 
to sign up new members. De- 
posits will also be accepted. 

The Credit Union has been in- 
corporated by seven members of 
the University staff. They are 
Jack Martin, Arthur Warren. 
Barbara Fifield. Louis Mainzer. 
Paul Korpita. Mathew Blaisdell, 
nd Guy Lucia. It recently re- 
jeived its federal charter. 

A Credit Union allows Its mem- 
bers to make low interest loans. 
Dividend payments are larger 
than those received from a com- 
mercial bank. 

A large turnout is expected for 
this first meeting. It is hoped 
that a large percentage of the 
over 3,000 member staff will be- 
come members. 

A multi-phase construction pro- 
gram, presently underway on the 
University campus, has sched- 
uled the bulk of the building to 
be completed by the beginning 
of the 1968 fall semester.

elected from each dorm house. 
Lew Gurwitz, student activities 
advisor, says that the Executive 
Council has room for six com-

it is harder for the commuters 
to get together. Lew hopes there 
will b? strong support for the

The Executive Council was in-

two of its most important ac-

in which money is to be spent 
is left strictly up to the Council. 
Last summer funds were spent

Montono's Monsfield Soys: 

Ethics Bill Mandatory 

AP Democratic leader Mike Mansfield of Montana said Satur- 
day he is confident the Senate will enact a "straigtit-forward. simple, 
understandable code of ethics" this session as a result of the censure 
of Senator Thomas J. Dodd. 

"I think such a code is mandatory," the Senate majority leader 
said in an interview in which he declined to discuss other aspects of 
the censure action against the Connecticut Democrat. 

After nine days of agonizing and solemn debate, the Senate by 
a 92-5 i*ote censured the white-haired Dodd for converting some 
$116,083 of campaign and testimonial funds to his personal benefit. 

But it rejected by a 51-45 margin a second censure charge by a 
Senate ethics committee that Dodd had collected travel expenses 
from both Senate funds and private groups for seven trips. 

Mansfield said he is certain that the bi-partisan, six-senator 
Committee on Standards and Conduct, headed by Sen. John Stenni.s, 
D-Miss., will prepare the formal written ethics code for Senate ac- 
tion before adjournment. It would apply to members and Senate em- 

There have been suggestions that such a code should be drawn 
jointly with the House and applied to meml>ers of both chambers.

HAWKINS . . . 

{Continued from Page 1) 
Jcdin Brown, featuring Haw- 
kins, with Kelly Holt aptly por- 
traying the Interlocutor, was the 
only dance presented that sha.vs 
dance in its second function ■ — 
showing emotion and portraying 
a story. One student said, "This 
dance was exciting, but I prefer 
the pureness and sensuousness of 
the other dances." 

Some persons found the dances 
to be "different" from any others 
they had seen. The aesthetics 
was new to them and thus they 
"weren't sure if they liked it or 
not." Most agreed, however, that 
the dance was unique. 

Miss Dlugoszewski provided 
unusual scores for Geog^raphy of 
Noon and Eight Clear Places. 
She used percussive instruments, 
pla^ir-g these on stage as part 
of the total dance vision. 

Her "timbre" piano, which in- 
volves new bowing and muting 
techniques on the strings, using 
bows of wood, felt, metal, glass, 
wire and plastic, was used for 
Early Floating. One well traveled 
person said, "She has by far the 
most unique music I have ever 
hear d—fanta Stic . " 

Eight Clear Places was a 50 
minute dance featuring Erick 
Hawkins and Dena Madole. The 
parts of the dance are north star, 
pine tree, rain, cloud, inner foot 
of the .summer fly, the snowing, 
and squash. 

Humor was well presented in 
the inner foot of the summer fly 
and squash, aided by costumes 
that were well designed for the 
dance. Outstanding performances 
were given by both dancers. 

Hawkins' choreography has 
been classified by New York 
dance critics as representative 
of the avant-garde— a new kind 
of art-a new way of thinking and 
of performing the art of dance. 

Undoubtedly, these two con- 
certs presented a new experience 
in dance for many viewers who 
came to the opening of the Sum- 
mer Arts Festival.

Woodcock Study Is 
Published By UMass 

Fifteen years of research on one of America's most fascinating birds has produced "The Book 
of the American Woodcock," a definitive study by wildlife biologist WUliam G. Sheldon published 
last week by the University of Massachusetts Press. ...,,• •♦ k 

Sheldon, who heads the federal-state Cooperative WUdLife Research Unit at the University, has 
devoted 240 pages. 58 illustrations and more than 30 tables and other statistical units to the bizarre 
and beloved woodcock, a bird of almost whimsical appearance, elusive habits remarkable matmg 
customs and in Sheldon's words, "endowed with fortitude and a certam nobilitty.

Although the wtwdcock ranges 
over the eastern U.S. and Can- 
ada and migrates each year from 
the northeast to the Gulf states, 
it is a shy. solitary, nocturnal 
bird. Many Americans have nev- 
er seen one, but its appearance 
is such, in Sheldon's words, that 
"Once seen, a woodcock is never 

The bird's distinguishing fea- 
tures are its eyes and bill — both 
of which app>ear too large for 
its head. The eyes are big and 
dark like shoebuttons and are 
set high and far back on the 
striped head. The bill is a sharp 
probe 2Vi inches long. 

The size of a man's fist, the 
woodcock has plumage in a 
brown-gray - cinnamon combina- 
tion that can make it virtually 
invisible against the dead leaves 
of the forest floors where it 
feeds. The long bill is used to 
probe the damp earth of forests 
and thickets for the worms and 
insects that are its principal 

Woodcocks fascinate ornithol- 
ogists and naturalists because 
of their Individuality. For exam- 
ple, they are one of the few 
birds whose ears are ahead of 
their eyes; their brains, in con- 
trast to all other members of 
the bird family, are upside down. 
They have been hunted since 
the colonists came to America 
and are still prized as a game 
bird, offering, according to Dr.

"The Book of the American 
W(x>dcock" details woodcock his- 
tory, migration, range, mating 
cycle, diet and habitat. Sheldon 
devotes a full chapter to hunt- 
ing the bird, drawing on his own 
long experience as a sportsman 
and adding detailed information 
from the game records of sev- 
eral states. Another chapter is 
devoted to woodcock game man- 

The author has compiled data 
from a variety of biological and 
historical sources for his study 
but the heart of it is based on 
his own field work — years of 
day and night observation, trap- 
ping, netting and banding of 
woodcock, mainly in the hilly 
country north and east of Am- 
herst In central Massachusetts. 
It is in these areas that Shel- 
don has observed what he calls 
"one of the most remarkable 
performances in the avian world 
— the courtship sky dance of the 
American woodcock." 

E;ach male bird, the Massa- 
chusetts biologist explains, 
chooses for himself a "singing 
ground"— a forest clearing, an 
empty peisture. abandoned orch- 
ard or in some cases a little- 
used dirt road. Each male holds 
exclusive sway over his singing 

male birds who approach it. 

The woodcock courtship be- 
gins in the spring dusk over the 
singing ground with the male 
bird circling over the area at a 
height of up to 275 feet, uttering 
a chirping song, then descending 
to the ground in a gliding zig- 

The male walks to and fro 
on the ground, uttering a char- 
acteristic "peent" sound, then 
launches into another flight. The

Unless Adopted, Crime 
Study Will Be A Waste 


(;B_With its final report the President's crime 
commission issued a warning that the nation can 
"expect increasing amounts of reported crime for 
the next several years." 

The warning came from Undersecretary of State 
Nicholas Katzenbach, chairman of the commission 
who said "new and more effective measures of 
crime prevention and control are urgently needed.' 

In its final report, the President's Commission 
on Law Enforcement and AdmUiistratlon of Jus- 
tic* issues an urgent plea for the establishment 
of a National Crimhial Justice Statistics Center 
as an effective beginnbig hi the fight against crime. 

The commission found present statistics inad- 
equate and often misleading. "Without the kind 
of information that can only he obtained through 
such a center," the commission said, "the country 
is doomed to continue its fight against crime with- 
out reaUy knowing its enemy." 

The commission calls Negro ghetto riots— such 
as the five-day Watts eruption in 1965— a "cry 
for help" to eliminate the deprivations of ghetto 

James Vorenberg, commission executive direc- 
tor, said at a briefing for newsmen on the final re- 
port that the whole movement to do something 
about crime is hanging in the balance on the John- 
son administration's proposed anti-crime legisla- 

Vorenberg referred to the Law Enforcement and 
Criminal Justice bill which, before House Repub- 
llca.ns farced a change in the name was the "Safe 
Streets and Crime Control" bill. It would provide 
$.50 mlllton the first year for grants to cities and 
states t<i help Improve crime control. 

The measure has been favorably reported by the 
Judioiary Committee and now is awaiting action 
on the House floor, probably sometime after the 
July 4 holiday. 

If Congress passes that act it will be an ample 
continuation of the crime commission's work, Vor- 
enberg said, but "if they don't, a large part of the 
commission's work v/ill have gone to waste." 

The crime commission goes out of business June 
30. Then it will have been in operation two years, 
and its total operating costs are estimated at more 
than $2 million.

Stacks Are 
Now Open 

Goodell Library officials last 
Monday instituted an open-stack 
policy on the library's resources 
for the first timo since 1960. 
During the past seven years, 
since the library was expanded 
to its present siize, the stacks 
had been closed to most under- 
graduates. The official Universi- 
ty Library notice appears on 
page 2 of today's Statesman. 

The major goal is to improve 
reader service, according to 
James Sokoloski, assistant to the 
director of the Library. He de- 
scribed the now policy as a trial 
program which will be continued 
during the winter if succssful. 

Sokoloski has not yet noticed 
any of the "mutilation, theft, 
and misshelving" which usually 
occurs with oi>en stacks. He find 
the rest of the library staff 
"quite onthu.siastic" about the

RAMPARTS Magazine Charges U.S. 
With Involvement In Greek Coup 

. j;„.^ roar-tinn nf involvemcnt in Greeks 

Amherst College Masquers 
Present Summer Theatre 

The United States embassy in 
Athens and the Central Intel- 
ligence Agency were "deeply in- 
volved" in setting the stage for 
the bloodless coup by the right- 
wing junta which overthrew the 
Greek government, a story in the 
June issue of Ramparts maga- 
zine charged today. 

The charge was made by Ste- 
phen Rousseas. a New York Uni- 
versity economics professor who 
recently spent five months in 
Greece, much of that time in 
close consultation with Andreas 
Papandreou. the former Univer 
sity of California economics dean 
impHsoned by the junta when it 
seized power on April 21. 

In the Ramparts story, Rous- 
seas reported. "At 2:30 in the 
morning of April 21. the Ameri- 
can trained and equipped Greek 
Army broke into Andreas Papan- 
dreou's house in Athens. Eight 
soldiers with machine guns, pis- 
tols, and rifles with bayonets 
broke into the bedroom of An^ 
dreas" 12-year old daughter and 
overturned her bed. throwing her 
to the floor. They pulled every- 
one out of bed. shouting. 'Where 
is Andreas? We want Andreas.

and banding procedures, tech- 
niques developed by him that are 
now used widely in studying 

He concludes his work with an 
appeal for more research and 
more money and manpower for 
woodcock game management 
programs. "I have concluded 
that at present the woodcock is 
holding its own, but this is no 
reason to relax vigilance, and 
we should continually strive to 
improve our methods/^ 

The immediate reaction of 
everyoiie was that terrorists had 
broken in to assassinate him." 
Rousseas said. "With the help of 
his 14-year old son, Papandreou 
had been boosted from an outside 
balcony onto the roof. The house 
was surrounded by the Army." 

"After intimidating eveirone," 
the Ramparts story said, "break- 
ing open closets and ripping out 
the clothing, the soldiers threat- 
ened to kill Papandreou's son un- 
less he told them where his father 
was. At that time Andreas gave 
himself up." 

Rousseas charged, "It is dear 
that the United States embassy 
and other representatives of the 
U.S. government were deeply in- 
volved in various levels of the 
coup and encouraged forces that 
would destroy democracy in 

Ramparts said the U.S. em- 
bassy secretly approached Ajv 
dreas Papandreou on April 3 and 
7 with the intention of trying to 
help King Constantine by getting 
Papandreou's Center Union to 
agree to the postponement of 
elections and establishment of a 
"national unity" government. 

Rousseas called the notion that 
King Constantine had nothing to 
do with the coup "one of the big_ 
gest public relations hoaxes of 
the century. The fact remains." 
he said, "that for 22 months the 
King, with the connivance of the 
United States, had done every- 
thing in his power to prevent 
democratic elections." 

The irony of the United States 
role in the coup, according to 
Ramparts, is that "had Andreas 
Papandreou still been m this 
country, he undoubtedly would 
have been a supporter of Lyndon 
Johnson's Great Society." Rous- 
seas said that the United States 

involvemcnt in Greek's internal 
politics left Papandreou no choice 
but to raise his voice in opposi- 
tion to it. 

Rousseas predicted that it will 
only be a matter of months be- 
fore a massive resistance move- 
ment develops to the junta which 
will ultimately cause the country 
to erupt into a bloody civil war. 
"It will then be interesting to see 
if we land the Marines as we did 
in the Dominican Republic." 

With an expanded company of 
players and a repertoire of three 
famous British comedies, the Am- 
herst College Masquers will pre- 
sent their second season of sum- 
mer theater for audiences in the

Nobel Prize Winner 

A Nobel Prize winner in phys- 
ics also famed as a philosopher 
is the subject of the new Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts Press book 
"Erwin Schrodinger: An Intro- 
duction to His Writings," by 
theoretical physicist William T. 

Scott. w,- u ^ 

The 192-page volume, published 
last week, is the first comprehen- 
sive study of Schrodinger's writ- 
ings. Its author, now at the Uni- 
versity of Nevada, is a former 
faculty member at Amherst and 
Smith Colleges. 

Erwin Schrodinger was award- 
ed the Nobel Prize in 1933 for his 
development of the theory of 
wave mechanics yet he is almost 
as well known for his speculative 
essays and lectures, such as 
"What is Man?" and 'What is a 
Law of Nature?"

This account of Schrodmger s 
thought provides insights in the 
philosophical foundation of quan-

Turning to Schrodinger's other

mind to answer many of the 
great philosophical questions of 
our time. 

Schrodinger's reflections on 
several thenves— the place of man 
in the universe, the rationaUty of 
science, the relation of self to 
nature and the personal elements 
in scientific observation — are 
shown as significant contributions 
to the history of ideas.

BoSox Need New Park 





Statesman Reporter 

The Boston Red Sox solidified their hold on third place 
in the American League yesterday on their thirty fifth vic- 
tory of the season. The Sox, powered by the bats of Cary 
Yastrzemski, Joe Foy, and Bob Tillman and the right arms 
of Gary Bell and Jose Santiago, smashed the Indians 8-3 
at Fenway park. 

Yastrzemski and Foy each hit homers, respectively 
their 18th and 10th of the not quite half hold season. Bell, 
who has won 4 out of 5 since coming to the Red Sox went 
5 2/3 innings, and collected his 100th career win. 

The Red Sox have been the 
surprise team in the American 
League this year, and are cur- 
rently 5 games behind the league 
leading White Sox. 

Keying the Sox success this 
year has been the play of Yastr- 
zemski, Rico Petrochelli, Tony 
Conigiliaro, Jim Lonborg, and of 
late. Bell and Joe Foy. 

Yastrzemski, a guaranteed 
choice for the All Star team, is 
second in the league in batting, 
has 18 home runs, and 55 RBI's. 
Petrochelli, who is now on the 
bench with a brused hand, has 
been spectacular in the field and 
has been batting over 300 for 
most of the season. 

Coming back from two weeks 
in the Army, Tony Conigilaro has 
raised his average well over the 
300 mark and seems to have re- 
gained the long ball prowess that 
won him the Homerrun champ- 
ionship two years ago. 

The most surprising thing 
about the Red Sox this year has 
been the pitching. Jim Lonborg,

Sox is assured a spot on the All 
Star team with his 9-2 record. 
Equally effective since being 
traded by Cleveland has been 
veteran Gary Bell. These two 
right handers have given Boston 
a solid 1-2 pitching pair, the first 
such the SOX have had in several 

These individual performances, 
along with the great team play 
by Dick Williams's new look 
team ihave contributed the amaz- 
ing revival in fan interest in Bos- 
ton. Attendance is up over 
150,000 from last year. 

This fact substemtiates the 
contention made by many base- 
ball people, that Boston is indeed 
one of the strongest franchises 
'in the league. However Red Sox 
Tom Yawkey owner made a 
statement last week that threat- 
ened the very existence for ma- 
jor league baseball in Boston. 

Without a new stadium in Bos- 
ton, the Red Sox would be such 
a bad investment that even the 
millionaire sportsman Yawkey 
could not continue to operate in 

Yawkey stated that if there is 
no new stadium in Boston within 
five years there will be no Bos- 
ton Red Sox. 

Tills statement raised the cur- 
tain for more arguments con- 
cerning the stadium. Law 
makers began to pay lip service 
to the desirability of a new stad- 
ium but bemoaned the fact that 
stadiums are not built on con- 
crete alone. 

The Red Sox continue to win. 
The Legislators continue to talk. 
The status quo cannot continue.

Outfielders Fill N.C. 


NEW YORK im — When the National League players start 
voting Thursday for their 1967 All-Star team they are going to have 
a tough time not filling the line-up with outfielders. Of the top 10 
hitters in the National League, seven are outfielders starting with 
Roberto Clemento of Pittsburgh whose .368 led both majors after 
ruesday night's games. 

Furthermore, outfielders man the lead position in six of the 
seven individual categories that the statisticians keep. Orlando Ce- 
peda, the St. Louis first baseman who used to play the outfield at 
times when he was with the San Francisco Giants, leads in doubles. 
All the rest are outfielders. 

Hank Aaron of the Atlanta Braves is tops in homers and runs 
scored. Red-hot Jlin Wynn of the Houston Astros leads in runs 
batted In. Lou Brock of the St. Louis Cardinals has the most hits 
and also the most stolen bases. Billy Williams of the Chicago Cubs 
has the most triples. Of course, Clemente is the percentage leader. 

The only non-outfielders among the top 10 hitters lin the Na- 
tional are Cepeda, Tim McCarter, St. Louis catcher, and Richie 
Allen, Philadelphia third baseman. 

One outfielder, Frank Robinson of Baltimore, dominates the 
batting statistics in the American League. The triple crown champ 
of 1966 appears on his way to a reF>eat performance. In addition to 
showing the way in batting, home runs and runs batted in, Robin- 
son also has the most runs and hits. 

In the American League's top 10, there are six outfielders, In- 
cluding Frank Robinson, Carl Yastrzemski of Boston, Al Kaline 
and Jim Northrup of Detroit, Ken Berry of Chicago and Tovar. 
The others are Bill Freehan, Detroit catcher; Rod Carew, Minnesota 
second baseman; Don MIncher, California first baseman, and Rico 
Petrocelli, Boston shortstop. 

The players now vote for three outfielders and do not have to 
designate any position. Voting results will be announced next week. 
The players, managers and coaches pick the eight starters, exclu- 
sive of pitchers, but are not permitted to vote for players on their 
own team.

Exec Council Committee 
To Make Investigation Of Phones 

Vol. I, No. 5 University of Massachusetts Thursday, June 29, 1967 

'Statesman' Editor 

The 1967 Executive Council held its first meeting last 
areas of proposed Council action. It established a committee 
It heard from the Dean of Students. 

"The whole idea of a grouip 
of students representdnig other 
students is deadly serious," as- 
serted William F. Field, Dean 
of Students. 

Field took time to say of the 
UMass Student Senate, "We 
have during tlie winter time 
the most active, most responsi- 
ble . . . student government of 
all state universities." 

RSO Business Manager Ger- 
ald Scanlon stressed the impor- 
tance of a working arrange- 
ment with the Student Senate 
in his remarks to the Council. 

Chaired by Lew Gurwitz '68 
the Council immediately went 
to work. Apparentily heeding 
Gurwiftz' remark tha/t "most 

(student government) things 
are a little bit better for try- 
ing," the new government es- 
tablished a committee to inves- 
tigate the possibility of having 
the Ttjom phones coainected. 
The motion was made by Paul 
Gibbs of J. Adams. 

The Council's reoommenda- 
tion concerned the use of the 
Dining Commons for a study 
and recreation area. The point 
was made by Ken Kaplen 
(J.F.K. Lower) that Council 
support might accomplish 
what "talking until blue in the 
face" had not been able to do. 

In other action, the Council 
heard a request for a represen-

Kieth Crown Exhibition. 

Crown Conies 
To Colonial 

The Keith Crown Art Exhibi- 
tion will be shown in the Colonial 
Lounge in the Student Union be- 
ginning tomorrow and running 
through July 21. The collection 
illustrates Crown's explanation 
of the mysteries of man, nature 
and plants. 

Commenting on the Crown ex- 
hibition, Miss Constance Parkins, 
art critic for the Los Angeles 
Times, stated that "to Crown 
nature is not static, nor can a 
single image of it reveal its in- 
ner mystery. The secret for ade- 
quate means by which to express 
the sense of the world around 
him as he sees it has lead to his 
many inventions." 

One such invention is the nega- 
tive expression. In this medium 
it is the unpainted paper that 
conveys the painter's message 
rather than the painted outlines. 
Crown uses pieces of lace, twigs, 
weeds, or any object that satis- 
fies him for the outline. 

Miss Parkins, continuing her 
analysis of Crown, stated that, 
"because his paintings, no mat- 
ter what medium is used, seem 
to be the product of a quirk and 
spontaneous reaction to the im- 
pact that visual stimuh have had 
on him, one is startled to find

Since 1964 Crown has found the

Amherst Drops Marks 

Amherst College will discontinue numerical grades in favor of 
a new, nine-step letter grade system beginning with the next aca- 
demic year. 

The new system, the first basic change In Amherst's grading 
procedures since the present 100-polnt numerical scale was Instituted 
in 1892, Is Intended to make possible finer distinctions In academic 
performance at the upper end of the scale, while at the same time 
reducing the overall complexity of grading and with it any undue em- 
phasis on grades as educational ends in themselves. 

The nine letter grades to be used henceforth at Amherst are: 
A-I-, A, A—, B-h, B, and B — , all indicating worl< at a level leading 
to the award of a degree with honors, and C, D, and F. 

The change was voted by the faculty on the recommendation of 
its Committee on Educational Policy, following a year-long study by 
the committee of present grading practice and a wide range of pos- 
sible alternatives. Chairman of the CEP is Professor Frank A. Trapp 
of the Department of Fine Arts. 

The new letter-grade system. In addition to providing six sepa- 
rate levels of evaluation for work at the honors level, will also serve 
to distinguish between honors and passing work by the student In 
each Individual course. In presenting Its reconunendatlons for the 
new system, the CEP noted In this connection that: 

"The emphasis here upon academic attainment of honors caliber 
is consistent with the prevailing belief in the value of the Honors 
Program at Amherst College, and informatively locates course grades 
within the context of the degree recognition which they ultimately 

The present practice of reporting rank-in-class and cumulative 
grade average will be discontinued under the new system. Instead, 
each individual's transcript and grad reports will be accompanied by 
a grade profile s'howing in percentages the distribution of cumulative 
averages for a group that includes students of his own class to- 
gether with the two preceding Amherst classes at the same stage of 
their academic careers. 

This is intended to afford the student a way of comparing his 
general performance with that of others at a similar stage of aca- 
demic development without confining his attention in an unneces- 
sarily competitive way to his own classmates, as under the present 

The new system provides that a student's ranking within his 
own class, where this information is desired, will be reported only 
at his own request and then not as an absolute rank but in group- 
inigg no finer than fifths of the class — *or example, upper 20 percent, 
lower 20 percent. 

The present practice of reporting six- and twelve-week grades 
will also be discontinued, with only grades of D and F to be reported 
at the mid-poin^ in each term.

Liberty Warned 
Before Attack 

WASHINGTON (JPi — The Joint 
Chiefs of Staff issued orders for 
the USS Liberty to move away 
from the Egyptian coast a few 
hours before the communications 
ship was strafed and torpedoed 
by Israeli forces June 8, the 
Pentagon disclosed Wednesday. 

Ironically, the Pentagon said, 
"the messages were misrouted, 
delayed, and not received until 
after the attack." 

The disclosure came in a Pen- 
tagon summary of a Navy court 
of inquiry convened two days 
after the attack to investigate 
the circumstances of the assault. 

Thirty-four U.S. seaman aboard 
the Liberty were killed and 
about 75 others wounded in the 
incident. Israel said the attack 
was carried out by mistake. 

The Pentagon's version of the 
court of inquiry findings made 
no mention of the Liberty's mis- 
sion. The government's position 
has been that she was near the 
area of hostilities to provide 
communications in case any 
Americans had to be evacuated 
because of the war. 

The summary disclosed that 
aircraft had flown over the com- 
munications ship on three sep- 
arate occasions before the attack.

UMass Introduces 

To Japan 

Amherst. Mass. — The Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts, which in- 
troduced the soybean to this 
country from Japan 80 years 
ago. is now introducing the Mas- 
sachusetts cranberry to Japan. 

The UMass College of Agricul- 
ture has sent Dr. Chester E. 
Cross, head of its Cranberry Sta- 
tion at Wareham, Mass., to in- 
troduce cuttings of carefully se- 
lected cranberry varieties in the 
peat soils of the Teshio area of 
northwest Hokkaido. 

Climate there is similar to that 
of Cape Cod. the top U.S. cran- 
berry-producing area. Successful 
cranberry production in the 
Teshio area is a possibility, the 
UMass expert has said. 

Dr. Cross will remain in Japan 
until July 25. conducting lecture 
and seminar work in cranberry 
culture at Hokkaido University 
so that scientists there can main- 
tain the cranberry plantings. It 
takes a minimum of three years 
for cranberry plants to produce 

The project is being sponsored 
by the Japan Society (or Promot- 
ing Agriculture at the request of 
Harusada Suginome, recently - 
retired president of Hokkaido 

The soybean crop was intro- 
duced to the U.S. in 1888 by Prof. 
William P. Brooks, one of a 
group of Massachusetts agricul- 
turalists invited by the Japanese 
to introduce American education- 
al methods at the newly-formed 
Sapporo Agricultural College, 
which today is Hokkaido Univer- 
sity. Three varieties of soy- 
beans and many other Japanese 
plants were brought back for 
trial planting in this country by 
Prof. Brooks.

ROTC units are located on

of these LSD has found some

Some LSD usage within the

Health Services 
To Be Expanded 


Statesman Editor 

"There probably hasn't been a day since Christmas that 
we haven't had in-patients," said the director of the Univer- 
sity Health Services. 

Dr. Robert W. Gage went on 
to say that the Infirmary serv- 
ices in the summer are basically 
the same as during the academic 
year. The out-patient hours are 
different, however. 

On Mondays throug-h Fridays, 
the out-patient hours are 9 a.m. 
to 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. to 
4:30 p.m. On Saturday, the hours 
are 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. 

During out-patient hours, a 
physician is on duty at the In- 
firmary and at all other times, 
one is on call according to the 

But due to the reduced num- 
bers of students, the Infirmary 
use is less in the summer months 
said Gage. Only between two and 
eight students have stayed over- 
night recently although there are 
80 available beds, he said. 

Another reason for the fewer 
in-patients is a drop in respira- 
tory ailments in the warmer 
months, continued Gage. 

Approximately, 59,000 out- 
patient visits and 1,865 overnight 
stays for the last fiscal year were 
cited by the director to demon- 
strate the heavy use. About five 
visits per student is the average 
for a year, he said. 

To cope with the demands of 
the academic year, Gage is re- 
questing an additional physician 
and other staff increases. If the 
staff additions are approved by 
the legislature, there would be 
nine physicians, two psydhiatrists 
and a psychologist at the Infirm- 
ary explained Gage. 

Also included in the Health 
Services budget request is an 
amount to plan an enlargement 
of the physiceil plant. Gage would 
like to add space twice the pres- 
ent lifirmary size. Primarily, 
the space would provide a larger 
out-patient area including dental 
health and mental health offices, 
the doctor said. 

According to him, the increase 
would also add 40 beds for in- 
patient use. 

The x-ray department covering 
650 square feet should cover 

9,000 declared the Health Serv- 
ices director. At present, he said, 
we have one x-ray macliine, but 
we should have three. 

While the physical plant cost 
is borne by the State, the other 
operating expenses are paid for 
by the students. Next fall a $5 
per semester increase will bring 
the student health fee to $50 a 

Students enrolled in the two 
summer sessions pay a fee of $16. 
But regular UMass students may 
also pay the summer fee for serv- 
ice over the 12 weeks. 

Faculty, regular employees 
and visitors don't use the In- 
firmary, explained Gage, except 
in emergencies. The Health Serv- 
ices expansion, he indicated, is 
basically to meet the needs of in- 
creased student enrollment while 
providing improved care.

Cultural Editor 
Explains Criticism 


Anyone interested in the contemporary art scene knows how 
difficult it can be evaluating a work of art or communicating 
verbally one's response to it. Even more difficult is the job of 
pa'ssing judgement on something as intangible as the merits of a 
musncal score, a dance piece, a painting or literary work. Yet 
these three tasks make up the core of a cultural" editor's work. 
Unquestionably such evaluations are highly subjective. 

Milton Brass, cultural editor of the 'Berkshire Eagie' described 
his work to a small group of fellow journalists last Thursday af- 
ternoon at the Faculty Club on our campus. He testified of mak- 
ing artistic evaluations and to their inevitable subjectivity. In his 
point of view, however, subjectivity is a very positive aspect of 
reviewing the cultural scene. He pointed out that it is the re- 
viewer's responsibility to himself and to his readers to evaluate 
artistic work honestly and as he perceives it. Of course, if he fs a 
competent reviewer his observations are based on a good under- 
standing of the subject. 

Contrary to popular belief crit- 
ics are not infallible. Readers, 
based on past experience with 
a particular writer, can accept 
or reject his analysis. As Mr. 
Bass pointed out some of his own 
readers can be sure they wlU 
dislike anything he likes and con- 
versely like anything he dislikes. 

This type of familiarity with a 

many new and creative ideas on 
the present are scene. 

In commenting on this dimen- 
sion of our society he demon- 
strated his ability to view many 
of the current artistic move- 
ments with a degree of humor 
and intellectual seriousness. 

He described an incident from 

one of his recent trips to New

point of view. Consistency in out- 
look, Mr. Bass pointed out. is one 
of the most if not the most im- 
portant attribute a critic must 
have. A reader must know what 
to expect from a particular 
writer's articles. 

When reviewers are faced with 
a subject with which they are 
not familiar Mr. Bass suggests 
simple factual reporting as the 
best answer to the problem. Ad- 
vice which should be heeded by 
some contemporary art critics!

Provost TIppo'8 pitching coach points out flaw In his blazing 


Sarge Fury Mauls On Opening Night 

By MARK SILVERMAN, 'Statesman' R^orter 

The intramural softtoall season began Tuesday with Provost Oswald Tippo throwing 
out the first ball. The program, which is open to all students, normally is one of the most 
hotly contested activities on campus. 

The opening day action saw Sergeant Fury maul Dean's Team 29-5. Soul brothers defeated the 
Good Guys (who weren't quite good enough) 13-3. The Red Barons bombed John's Disciples 13-8. 
Goodell Libe Bombers, Moodey Blues, and Budweisers all won by forfeit over the Daquu-ies, Distillers, 
and Bombers respectively. 

The games that were played saw heroics, blunders, Intelligence 

S and miscues mixed with those intangibles that are a part of any 

U M M £ R UMass league.

The most promising pitcher, however, appeared to be Tippo. 
Speculation as to whether he had been signed by one of the teams 
ran wild. One catcher on that team stated that if Tippo pitched, he 
would refuse tx) catoh, because Tippo's blazing fastball might result 
in a permement injury to his wrist. Several students voiced disgust 
for their teams' poor recruiting systems, because they had neglected 
to sign the Provost for a big bonus. 

All this remains speculation, however, as Tippo was not avail- 
able for conunent after the game. He was curiously incognito today 
as well, exchanging ids baseball uniform for the everyday garb of a 
University administrator. 

Meanwhile, all the campus awaits the continuation of the Intra-

rified at the vision of his blazing fastball coming in over the plate 
for two games every week.

Dozen Swamps Michelobs 

By SANDY PINNEY, Sports Staff 

The summer intramural basketball season opened on June 26 
with four exciting games. Harold and the Boys showed great effort 
only to be beaten by The Froths 31 to 22. 

In another game, the Michelobs found it impossible to dig 
themselves out from under the Dirty Dozen and lost 81 to 32. 

Dunn led in scoring for the Dirty Dozen by hooping 14 points, 
with Pope scoring 12 and Gideon scoring 10. 

Russell played a real good game by scoring 13 points for the 
Michelobs. Orenstein was next in line with 8 points. 

In an ironical game, the Vikings sailed over the Globetrotters 
with a score of 58 to 34. It was ironical because the Globetrotters 
is a team comprised of 6 graduates and a professor from the Grad- 
uate School of Education. 

The Moody Blues were in a good mood after beating the Redmen. 
There is no official score for this game because there weren't 
enough members to fulfill the requirements for a team. 

Another set of games is scheduled for July 3. Since each game 
determines the standing of the teams, every game is important and 
will be filled with exaitement.

Smith College Social Work School 
Celebrates 50th Anniversary 

The Smith College School for Social Work began its 50th 
year on Monday evening with convocation held at the Alum- 
nae House. President Thomas C. Mendenhall brought greet- 
ings of the trustees and welcomed students and faculty at 
the opening of the school's academic session. 

The school reports enroll- age of professionally trained 
nient this year is the largest in 
its history: 213 students from 
35 states, nine foreign coun- 
tries and representing 140 col- 
leges. Thirty-three of the stu- 
dents are men, seven beginning 
the master's degree program, 
and 11 working for either the 
third year diploma or the doc- 
torate in the program of ad- 
vanced study. The master's de- 
gree is awarded after a se- 
quence Of three summer ses- 
sions of continuous academic 
work and two intervening win- 
ter sessions of continuous field 
work in different placements. 

Howard J. Parad, poxjifessor 
and dean of fhe school, referred 
to the expanding and chaJilenig- 
ing role confronting today's pro.- 
fessionally trained social work- 
er who is expected to develop 
skill ajs a practitioniar to fur- 
ther <inddviidiiajl and social bet- 
terment; as a reseeiPcher, to 
build up the foundations of 
knowledge that support social 
wx)rk practice; and as a teadh- 
er, to train and supervise new 
entrants into the social work 
profession. Mr. Parad aJso 
commented on the severe short- 

social work personnel who are 
urgently needed to staff the 
nation's rapidly growing net- 
work lof health, welfare and so- 
cial services. 

Three students at the school 
also spoke at convocation, de- 
scribing their experiences in 
the school's field instruction 
program: Alice Schwartz of 
New York City, a senior who 
has been training at the Boston 
Family Service; Olive Miles of 
Victoria, Austrailia, in ad- 
vanced standing student in 
field work at the Central Psy- 
chiatric Clinic of the Cincinna- 
ti General Hospital; and Jerold 
Voss of Waverly, Iowa, a sec- 
ond year student recently in 
field training at the Rochester 
(N.Y.) Mental Health Center. 

The public is invited to at- 
tend a series of four Monday 
evening lectures, sponsored by 
the School for Social Work

Summer Exec Elects Officers 


"Statesman" Reporter 

Last night in the Senate Cham- 
bers, the Summer executive coun- 
cil elected its new officers with 
David Bartholomew as its presi- 
dent. Bartholomew is from Lynn- 
field, Mass. and is now residing in 
J.F.K. Middle. Bartholomew won 
a substantial victory over Ri- 
chard Crawford of J.F.K. Upi)er 
for the office. Burt Freedman 
former treasurer of the Student 
Senate, received two votes, after 
refusing nomination for the of-

fice. Bartholomew stressed the 
upcoming "Folk-Picnic" night 
planned by the CouncU for July 
15th. "Full participation at this 
event would ensure future success 
at other plcmned events; full 
participation of the council is the 
important backbone of full par- 
ticipation by the rest of the stu- 
dent body." Bartholomew's advo- 
cations included having phones 
turned on in the dorms for the 
summer, towing investigated, 
I.D.'s for swing shift freshmen 
available, and integrated coordi- 
nation of the summer council 

with the fall Student Senate. 

Newly elected vice president 
Ann McGunigle, from East Bos- 
ton, now living in Calvin Coolidge 
Lower, is also well experienced in 
politics. Ann is a regular student 
at UMass Boston, but edged a 
victory over Buddy Vaughan, 
commuter representative, A. 
Frank Gori, J.F.K. Upper, and 
Ralph DiNapoli, J.F.K. Middle. 
"My platform comes mainly 
from the students ... its their 

The treasurer's seat will be 
filled by the swing shift fresh- 
man, Hugh Connerty of Hyde 
Park now living in J. Adams 

Lower. Hugh's victory was sub- 
stantial over Charlene Geller of 
Calvin Ctoolidge Lower. Hugh's 
main future responsibility is the 
"Folk-Picnic" held at the S.U. 
Terrace July 15th at 6 p.m. Tick- 
ets will be sold only in advance 
from floor representatives in the 
dorms. The hootanany will be 
from 8-10 featuring the Country 
Squires. Connerty said that 
"money is nothing to fool around 
with; I will really try to do my 
best, believe me." Oonnerty will 
have to handle over $1,000 this 
summer, as well as his other 
monetary responsibilities.

R. S. 0. Office Ready to Help 

by CHET WEINERMAN, "Statesman" Editor 

"We are here to assist students with any problems or programs or questions involv- 
ing extra-curricular activities," is the way Lois FYey, Student Activities Program Adviser, 
sums up the role of the UMass. Summer R.S.O. Office. 

In the winter months, the 
R.S.O. office — officially called the 
University Recognized Student 
Organizations Office serves the 
needs of some 360 campus or- 
ganizations. The Stamp Club 
and the Daily Collegian, the Ski 
Club and the Hillel Foundation 
all have charters and constitu- 
tions approved by the UMass. 
Senate, entitling them to a rec- 
ognized organization status. Any 
UMass. student is eligible to 
form an R.S.O. 

During the summer, however, 
most of the regular campus ac- 
tivities are dormant. Still, there 
are enough things going so that 
"the office" is active with sum- 
mer student traffic. A full staff 
is on hand to facilitate the ef- 
ficient operation of a complete 
extra-curricular life. 

In one corner of the office are 
Mrs. Scutter, who handles the 
scheduling in the Union, and 
Mrs. Davis, who is responsible 
for the bookkeeping of the 
R.S.O's. They work together with 
other secretaries and the R.S.O. 
student treasurers to insure ac- 
curacy in all the transactions of 
the organizations. 

Altho UMass. Gerry Scanlon is 
listed as the Business Manager 
of the R.S.O. Office, he is actu- 
ally in charge of the entire of- 
fice, and reports to Dr. Mark 
Noffsinger, director of the Stu- 
dent Union and coordinator of 
student activities. Scanlon is re- 
sponsible for all the financial 
problems incurred by having 
programs. The complications 
which inevitably arise out of a 
complex program are myriad 
and incalculable, but Scanlon 
handles them skillfully, and in 
his year as Business Manager, 
he has won the deep admiration 
of all who serve under him. 

Mrs. Frey supervises the oper- 
ation of every aspect of the Sum- 
mer Arts Program. She says that 
the prime objective of the pro- 
gram is "to give the kids a well- 
rounded program. Anything they 
want to do, we'll try." She also 
runs the "co-rec night" and the 
Faculty Lecture Series for the 
orientation students, as well as 
"an awful lot of little things." 
The little things are what often 
keep Mrs. Frey working until 
{Continued from Page 1) 

10:00 or 11:00 at night. Her chief 
assistant in the summer pro- 
gramming is Pat Feiffer. 

Serving as the Student Union 
Program advisor is Sheila Mc- 
Reevey, whose duty it is to su- 
pervise the activities which go 
on in the Student Union. Sitting 
at a desk across from Miss Mc- 
Reevey is Malcolm O'SuUivan, a 
UMass. senior, who heads the 
Summer Intramural Program. 
O'Sullivan supervises the organi- 
zation and implementation of 
both a Softball league and a 
basketball league. This summer 
marks the largest summer parti- 
cipitation in intramurals in the 
history of the school. 

The bulk of work with stu- 
dents, however, is done through 
the activities of the Summer Ex- 
ecutive Council, which initiates 
and implements most of the sum- 
mer programs. While Gerry 
Scanlon is the official adviser to 
the SEC, this function in actu- 
ality is assumed iby Lew Gur- 
witz. Gurwitz has already guided 
the residence halls in the for- 
mation of house governments and 
the writing of constitutions. He 
advises the SEC at their meet- 
ings; as a veteran Student Sen- 
ator, Lew is familiar with the 
technicalities of proper govern- 
ment, an area where the new 
Freshmen Councillors require

Robertson, Constitution Commit- 
tee, A. Frank Gori; Finance, 
Hugh Connerty; Judicial Com- 
mittee, Buddy Vaughan; amd Fall 
and Summer Government Co- 
ordinating Committee, Burt 

Bills considered and passed 
were that graduate students who 
pay their student activities fee 
would be elected to the summer 
council according to their propor- 
tion of students living in the 
dorm. (Tower six). Also passed 
was Vaughan's motion not to al- 
low council members on summer 
men's and women's judiciary 
bodies. The motion for holding 
dorm open houses was tabled for 
further investigation under the 
strong advice of Burt FreedmcUi 
who was in favor of it but 
thought it necessitated more 
committee study.

A senior at the University, 
Gurwitz directs SEC complaints 
to the proper channels, saving 
the Councillors much leg work 
and red tape, while at the same 
time teaching them the most ef- 
fective means of attaining an ef- 
ficient system of self-government. 
Gurwitz is assisted in his work 
by Mai O'Sullivan. 

At the far end of the office, 
student workers print political 
posters, mimeo, ditto, lineo- 
scribe, and embossograf work 
ordered by any student. This 
service proves invaluable during 
election periods, when effective 
publicity often dictates the win- 
ning candidates. 

With all the work that R.S.O. 
personnel have, they seem to 
want still more. Said Mrs. Frey: 
"The Keys and Revelers will be 
running some limited activity 
this summer, but the only really 
active club on campus is t he 
Folk Group, which meets on Fri- 
day nights at the S.U. Terrace. 
We're really hoping that the 
kids — through the Council or on 
their own — ^will come up with 
some unique programs. Working 
with them is what makes our 
job worthwhile. The more ac- 
tivity, the more interesting will 
be our summer. We'll try any- 
thing!" she reiterated.

Hampshire College to Open 
In Three Years 

Hampshire College will admit 
its first students in September 
1970. The opening date is now 
official, having ibeen decided on 
by Hampshire College trustees

same meeting the trustees ac- 
cepted the terms of a $3 million 
Fiord Foundation grant, contin- 
gent upon Hampshire raising $6 
million from private sources by 
June 1970. 

The $3 million grant to Hamp- 
shire is the largest Ford Foun- 
dation has made to any ooJlege, 
and its only major grant to a 
college not yet in operation. A 
decade ago the Foundation had 
supported the Hampshire Col -

Navy Worries 


figures show drug usage among 
sailors has climbed at a rate 
more than double that of last

The figures, as well as a new

month, seem to indicate more

psychedelic trips on LSD-trips

Candidates Send Signals 
In Smoke Filled Room 

by GARY BOMBARDIER, "Statesman" Analyst 

(Editor's Note: The writer has been both a candidate and a non-candidate.) 

Now there are four who bear the titles of Summer Student Executive Council officers. 
The results, as reported on page one, were the climax to a long week of campaigning in 
which conflicting personalities and ambitions were brought into sharp focus. 

Any election campaign for the 
leadership positions of a campus 
organization is essentially an ex- 
ercise in communication. 

The primary element in this 
campaign were the candidates 
who sought the four leadership 
positions. And this raises the fol- 
lowing question: why does an in- 
dividual seek office? 

Experience with student lead- 
ers on this campus leads to the 
conclusion that an individual be- 
comes a candidate because his 
perceptions of himself and his 
surroundings create a psycholo- 
gical need for him to seek the 
power and prestige which comes 
from holding a leadership posi- 

The individual expresses this 
need by becoming a candidate. 
And he justifies his candidacy by 
reference to his qualifications 
and to the ends which he de- 
sires the group to achieve (which 
he generally believes can only be 
achieved if he is elected). 

A second element in any cam- 
pai^^ are the non - candidates. 
These are generally passive In- 
dividuals who feel no need to 
seek office or who suppress this 
need for any number of reasons. 
The non - candidates determine 
which candidate for any given 
office is elected. This determina- 
tion is made on the basis of their 
perceptions of the different 

The campaign itself may be 
described as an exercise in which 
the candidates develop strate - 
gies for sending signals along 
communications channels to the 
non-cajididates in an attempt to 
influence favorably the percep- 
tions which the non-candidates 
have of them. 

The candidate faces any num- 
ber of problems in a campaign. 
In the first place he is faced 
with the problem of closed com- 
munications channels. This gen- 
erally occurs when a non-can- 
didate is committed to one cem- 
didate and therefore refuses to 
accept the signals of any other 

Candidates generally do not 
make any serious effort to send 
signals to those non-candidates 
who refuse to accept their sig- 
nals (although they may do so in 
the hope of re«naining on friend-

ly terms with the non-candi- 

A second problem which faces 
the candidate is static: his sig- 
nals to the non-candidate may 
encounter signals from other 
candidates which block out his 

A candidate generally tries to 
overcome this difficulty by draw- 
ing attention to the differences 
between himself and other 

The non - candidate also has 
problems. His imajor problem is 
to sort out the competing sig- 
nals in order to determine whom 
he should support. 

This problem is aggravated as 
the campaign wears on bc^cause 
the signals from different can- 
didates become louder and more 
insistent (and therefore only 
serve to block each other out). 

One of the more interesting 
things about campaigns is the 
difficulty which the candidates 
have in communicating with 
each other. For some unknown 
reason candidates refuse to ac- 
cept signals from other candi- 
dates. This tends to produce fric- 
tion which leads to open hos- 

As campaigns progress the 
signals coming from different 
candidates become louder and 
more insistent. The loudness of 
signals during a campaign cor- 
responds to the tension level. 
And the tension rises as candi- 
dates have less time to chan^ 
the perceptions of themselves in 
the minds of the non-candidates. 

The crescendo is election night 
— the final reckoning in which 
candidates discover if their sig- 
nals have been effective.

Action Hot and Heavy 

by JOHN KELLY, Sports Editor 

With the intramural season now underway, we find 
three teams tied for first place in Softball. Sarge Fury and 
his Howling Commandoes along with the Soul Brothers and 
Budweisers find themselves with unblemished records. Last 
year's overall winner of Intramural softball action, the 
Dean's Team, has had a rather slow start but sources, which 
asked to remain anonymous, said that they were just get- 
ting some excitement started within the league. 

It seems that summer school studies have taken ttieir toll as some 
of the teams that originally signed up to play haven't showed up at 
Boyden Field. It is sincerely hoped that every effort will be made 
so that these teams miay participate. 

A real battle looms i^p on July 13th as two undefeated powers 
face each other in a test as to which one is to remain with an un- 
blemished record. On that lucky day for one and unlucky for the 
other, Sarge Fury wlU howl against Tlie Soul Brothers. A big 
crowd is expected so be there early. 

Basketball action finds only the Froths and Moody Blues yet to 
taste defeat and they don't meet until early next month. Both teams 
have played well in their first games and should be tough to defeat. 

There has been much concern on campus about Harold & The 
Boys and The Midielobs. They both have yet to win and it is feared 
that this might affect the members of the teams in an adverse way. 
We wish the fans of these two teams would show up at Boyden and 
give them some moral support. The feeling of "ibeing wanted" some- 
times has a tremendous effect on the outcome of a game. So come on 
fans lets not act like normal UMass fans following The Redmen 
during the winter, let's get out and cheer.

had been an admirer years be- 
fore, saying she is trapped and 
begging for help — and the audi- 
ence knows this is hopeless, that 
the former admirer of a long- 
past day will never reply. 

The trapped woman, the beset 
heroine, has probably never been 
so portrayed so hauntingly as in 
this portrait of Blanche Du Bois. 
In reviewing "A Streetcar Named 
Desire" for Tomorrow Magazine. 
Harold Clurman. the noted stage 
director and critic, wrote that 
"the play is both personal and 
social and wholly a product of 
our life today. It is. . .a represen- 
tation of life in our country every- 
where today, and not just the 
South. . . 

"Blanche's lies are part of her 
willto-beauty; her wretched ro- 
manticism is a futile reaching 
toward a fullness of life. She is 
an almost willing victim of a 
world that has trapped her and 
in which she can find peace only 
by accepting the verdict of her 
displacement from the dignity 
she believes is her heritage."

Council Wants More Open Houses 

By DONNA LAOONTI, 'Statesman' Reporter 
The continuity of student government is eadiibited this summer as the Summer Ex- 
ecutive Council (SSEC) works on the problem of open houses for dorms. As the Student 
Senate, the Council is also waiting for recommendations of the Student Life Committee.

The Student Senate early this 
spring recommended that "each 
residence hall government be al- 
lowed to determine its own 
unique policy <» the frequency, 
duration, social contact and door 
policy" of open houses. Adoption 
of such policies by the house 
governments shall be treated as 
any other piece of legislation. 

The Wednesday Jnly 12 agenda 
of the SSEC as of press time, in- 
cludes a bill to the same effect 
for open lioiise policies this som- 
m«r. That "dormitories be al- 
lowed to schedule open houses 
once a week during the Summer 
Session," is the wording of a 
motion by Frank Gori (J.F.K. 
Uj^er) made at the last Council 
meeting and tabled. 

In an alternative motion by 
Gori, the Council may consider 
that "dormitories be allowed to

Life, William Barnard, stated in 
the spring that the committee 
was trying to formulate an intel-

ard's view. 

Also on the agenda for Wednes- 
day night for final approval, is 
Gale Palmer's amendmeirt to the 
constitution which states that

UT Performance "remarkably good" 

'Streetcar' Was Everything That Could Be Desired 

I r \ i Ml 

Stella fearfully watches Stanley's drunken bratvL 

"Whatever you are — I have always depended on the 
kindness of Strangers." And with th«se pathetic lines sunir 
marizing her entire downfall, Blanche DuBois fades away to 
an insane asylum. 

At this point, all the poignancy, suffering, and despair 
of her pitiful protagonist in Tennessee William's "A Street- 
car Named Desire" crashes over us, our hearts going out to 

However, it doesn't happen like that in the performance 
the Summer Repertory Theatre has presented. Somehow, 
the sympathies of the audience lie with Blanche's sister 
and her husband, who have had to put up with this dneamy 
Southern belle and her pompous airs. 

The roles of Stanley and Stella Kowalski were well 
played by Luis Avalos and Judith Rosenblatt. They gave a 
seemingly-effortless performance while strongly conveying 
the reality of each character, the intricate folds of each 
complex personality. 

As Mr. Avalos develops his role, the brutish sensuality 
and delight with the sheer pleasure of living is refreshingly 

Miss Rosenblatt plays a magnificent Stella, though per- 
haps a little too self-assured and convinced of the life she 
leads. However, these two actors compliment each other 
well, we can sense the warmth and deep bonds between the 
characters they play. 

Blanche, in desperation, as the memories of her suicidal, homo- 
sexual husband haunt her. 

Williams Play Develops 
Theme of Fallen Angel 

Thf; most widely-hailed and discussed play of our time ojieined the 
UMas.s Summer Repertory Theatre's third season. This pulitzer prize- 
winning drama by Tennessee Williams, A Streetcar Named Desire, 
which thrilled New York audiences for two solid years, opened on 
July 7th and 8th and plays until August 12th. 

Tennessee Williams, who first won success with the memorable 
Glass Menagerie, has developed the theme of the fallen angel along 
complfjtely new lines in A Streetcar Named Desire, and lias done it 
*.vith all the tragic beauty that is 

symholized by the magnolia. 
Williams draws a delicate paral- 
lel to the early blooming flower 
of the South, which, once fallen, 
contaminates all it touches with 
quick decay. 

Taking his title from the 
streetcar that once ran thi'ough 
the old French Quarter in New 
Orleans, a streetcar that bore 
the name of Desire and connect- 
ed with another named Ceme- 
tery, the playwright tells the 
story of the frail and fading 
Blanche who arrives suddenly on 
thj doorstep of her young sis- 
ter, Stella, and Stella's lusty 
boisterous husband, Stanley 

Her arrival brings nothing but 
clashes and confusion. Her gen- 
teel flurry of petty and futile 
pretences, and her talk about 
her nerves, her former teacher's 
job in Mississippi, and of lost 
plantations, are causes fior 
mounting irritation to the realis- 
tic Stanley. Soon she has put 
Stella and Stanley outweirdly at 
odds with one another. She talks 
of her conquests, she is afraid of 
bright lights and responds ra- 
ther desperately to the clumsy 
polite advances of Stanley's 
friend, Mitch, who thinks he 
would like to marry her. 

Through hot summer days, the 
tension grows. And Stanley, 
brutally determined to be rid of 
Blanche, unearths the truth a- 
bout her unsavory past. A tragic 
early marriage, ending in disas- 
ter, had driven her to more and 
more men, to drink, and to tak- 
i n g refuge in a dream world 
where what mattered was not 
truth but what she wanted to 
be true.

As Stella says, **There ane things that hiappen between 
a man and a woman in the dark.*' And she does show that 
these ^'things'* have bound her to Stanley in a satisfying if 
not fulfilling way. 

Susan Wallach, who plays Blanche, is perhaps a bit too 
young for this role. We cannot fully appreciate Blanchie's 
despair about her age because she doies not look or act aging. 
Miss Wallach develops in her role slowly, not taking com- 
imand until after the first act. 

Alfned Guizod, who played Mitch, and the rest of the 
cast were very good in supporting roles. However, of all the 
actors only Miss Harris and Mr. Avalos consistently main- 
tained th^ accents. 

Generally speaking, the performance is remarkably 
good. The technical aspects of the production were excel- 
lent, considering the limited resources of Bartlett a.udi- 

The lighting effects achieved success in their clarifying 
of sets, places, and situations within the stage. The mood 
prevailing throughout the play was effectively set by the 
distant moaning of New Orleans jazz. 

It is the music that gives us the first indication of 
Blanche's degenerating sanity. Sets and costumes were 
functional and appropriate. Harry Mahnken, through his 
casting and directing, successfully shifted in emphasis from 
Blanche to Stella and Stanley.

Fifteen years ago Sept. 19, 1951, the British actress Vivian Leigh 
starred in the moition picture premiere of Tennessee Williams' 
A Streetcar Named Desire. 

The review of Miss Leigh's performance by critic Bosley Cnowth- 
er in the New York Times was typical of the praise Miss Leigh re- 
ceived from all of her performances. 

". . .Miss Leigh accomplishes more than a worthy repeat of the 
p>erformance which Jessica Tandy gave on the stage. 

"Blessed with a beautifully molded and fluently expressive face, 
a pair of eyes that can flood with emotion and a body that moves 
with spirit and style, Miss Leigh has, indeed, created a new Blanche 
DuBois on the screen — a woman of even greater fullness, torment, 
and tragedy. 

"Although Mr. Williams' writing never precisely makes clear the 
logic of his disintegration before the story begins— why anyone of her 

breeding would become an undis-

Translators Meet Tonight 


Peace Corps Men Oppose the War 

We are United States citizens who have lived and worked abroad. We went to the 
countries of Asia. Africa, and Latin America because we wanted to offer the insights and 
techniques of the West to those whose societies are just begrinning to industriahze. 

We chose to work in programs like thie Peace Corps because we thought that through 
such channels we could support the forces of constructive change, rather than those 
which maintain the status quo of wealth, privilege, and exploitation. As citiziens of the 
United States we had been taught that aU men should be free to shape their own future, 
and we tried to act upon and transmit that understanding. 

Although in most instances we went in order to serve, we found that we had more to leam thwito 
teach, more to receive than to give. We afflueirt Americans were exposed to the realities of poverty, 
with its underlying apathy, violence, and chaos. ^ __* j

We returned to the United States committed to working towards changmg those ,pobcies and ac- 
tions (rf our govemmeTrt which we think serve only a narrowly-defined national interest ajd ideology. 
wThave resolved to strengthen those policies and actions which truly serve the whole world. 


We now find our nation increasingly involved in a conflict which 
threatens to destroy all that we sought to create and build in our 
work abroad ... 

It is on the basis of our experience overseas, for the future of 
the world and our nation's place in it, that we now speak. To keep 
silent at this point would be to betray all those goals for which we 
worked, and indeed all those goals we understand to be inherent in 
the fabric of this nation. Therefore, we now declare our oM>osition 
to the war in Vietnam, for the following reasons: 

We oppose the war in Vietnam because it destroys in one de- 
veloping country what we have worked to bmld in so many other 
developing countries . . . 

We oppose the war in Vietnam because it has largely destroyed 
indigenous leadership responsive to the needs and desires of the peo- 
ple .. . 

We oppose the war in Vietnam because we believe it undercuts 
the democratic ideals for which we worked abroad, and which we up- 
hold within the United States ... 

We oppose the war in Vietnam because we believe that the anti- 
communist rhetoric used to justify our actions there obscures the 
fact that the basic division in the world today is between rich and 
poor . . . The equivalent of the annual Peace Corps budget is spent 
every twx> days for the war in Vietnam . . . 

Therefore ... It becomes more and more obvious every day that 
there will be no lasting solution to the problems of Vietnam so long 
as American troops are fighting there. Therefore we call for their 
withdrawal . . . 

As has become obvious from our experience in community de- 
velopment, the only effective leadership is that Which is indigenous, 
and which does not depend on outside props to maintain it in power. 

Withdrawal also means that the Viet Cong are likely to become 
the dooTiinant element in Vietnamese political life after the departure 
of American troc^s. We wish to say several things about this possi- 
bility. First, by aiding Diem's rise to power and by supporting his 
unrepresentative and suppressive government, the United States con- 
tributed much to the rise of the NIjF. 

Second, of all groups in Vietnam today, it seems that the NLF 
is must authentically representative of the broadest segment of South 
Vietnamese society. 

Tliird, should communist members of the NX.F become inor- 
dinately powerful in any successor government in South Vietnam, it 
is for the South Vietnamese to decide when that point has been 
reached and how to deal with it. 

It cannot be decided by non-Vietnamese, no matter how well in- 
tentioned. Fourth, should the successor government decide to reunify 
with North Vietnam, that is their decision — as are the terms on 
which reunification might take place. 

Fifth, should violence occur in Vietnam after our withdrawal, 
let us not be hypocritical about it: it is unimaginable that it could 
equal the violence we now bring to that nation under the rationale 
of a commitment to a mdnority which knowingly gambled on our pro- 
tection of their irrterests. 

Inasmuch a« the policy assumptions underlying the U.S. presence 
in Vietnam also apply to our actions elsewhere, withdrawal of Ameri- 
can troops from Vietnam at this time will require the United States 
to re-evaluate its priorities throughout the world. It seems to us that 
a Cold War mentality which categorizes nations as "communist" or 
"free" completely ignores the most urgent and fundamental division 
of rich and poor. 

We have tried to serve the cause of peace in the world by work- 
ir^ in developing countries. We believe that our nation can sihow its 
true greatness by responding to the appeals for peace which come 
from aH around the world. 

Thi? United States must withdraw its troops from Vietnam, low- 
er Its worldwide military involvements, and give wholehearted sup- 
port to international efforts to place the technical resources of the 
West at the service of those who seek them. We appeal to our gov- 
ernment to make these the new set of national priorities.

per on Vietnam written by a group of returned Peace Corps Volim- 
teers and signed by 50 of them. It has been circulated at UMass by

recreational activity; if nothing else, the freshman comes to realize 
the hectic pace of college life. On Sunday night, their activities begin 
wdth residence hall section meeting led by the individual floor coun- 

The next morning, the new collegiates are expected to have 
arisen, eaten breakfast, and arrived at their advisory group meeting 
by 8:00 A.M. There they meet their student advisor, who tells them 
of what to expect in the next couple of days, including a grueling 
three hour testing session at 8:40 A.M. that morning. This battery of 
tests measures the general ability of the students in the fields of 
English, math and science. The test also shows where each student 
stands academically in relation to the typical University freshman. 

Monday afternoon is devoted to special testing (English essays, 
language placement, etc.) and to the glaring flashes of the Student 
I.D. photographers. After supper, there is another advisory group 
meeting to discuss the day's jumbled happenings. After being ad- 
vised, the cared - for freshman attends the Student Life Meeting, 
where he is (appropriately) informed of student life on campus. Here, 
student coimselors attempt to condense four years of experience into 
a compact hour. Somehow, vague impressions are iniplanted in the 
minds of the freshmen and hopefully will remain there past the 930 

The following morning is devoted to more special testing, ad- 
visory group meetings, and to a student activities meeting, where 
the coimselors inform the FVeshman of some of the 360 recognized 
student organizations on campus. Tuesday afternoon, the Freshman, 
guided by student and faculty advisors, select their prc^^ams for 
the significant first semester of college. A swimming proficiency 
test is administered after the course selections are completed. 

The Freshmen are treated to a night off on Tuesday, "co-rec 
nite", includes a dance, volleyball, softball, and/or co-recreational 
swlnuning. "Giving the students ample opportunity to meet their 
future classmates on a social level is a Lntegral part of the program," 
according to Dom Gieras, studentrHfaculty liason for the program. 

A psychological test on Wednesday morning is the last obliga- 
tion every Freshmcin must fulfill. After lunch, parents meet with 
student counselors at which time the anxiety of nervous adults are 
quelled. Finally the parents give the car keys to itheir "college 
Joe", who three days earlier had driven up as "high school Harry." 

"I think the program has tremendous value to the incoming 
Freshman," said Charlie Hopkins, one of the student counselors. It 
provides an opportimity for students to find out what they can 
expect in the fall, as well as getting the chance to get acquainted 
with the physical layout of the campus." 

Hopkins said that the program was valuable to the counselors 
as well as the Freshmen. "We come into contact with so many dif- 
ferent kinds of people and must be able to deal with so many situa- 
tions. I know that, for myself, this summer has opened up to me the 
possibility of teaching after graduation." 

When asked what he would do to improve the program in any 
way Hopkins replied: "...only that I would put more emphasis on 
the individual student advising. At least, the Freshman will not be 
lost in the overwhelming bigness of the Ilniversity. and he'U know 
one upperclassman when he returns in the faU."

Summer Repertory Theatre 
To Present 'Misalliance' Here 

Misalliance. Bernard Shaw's provocative come dy about love and marriage, will be presented at the 
University of Massachusetts Summer Repertory Th eatre on July 13th and 15th with the credentials of 
having remained, like the best of Shaw's other play s, .satirical, slightly shocking and uproariously funny 
more than fifty years after it first astonished audio noes and set them laughing. 

The author of Pygmalion, which was the basis 
for My Fair Lady, and a round doaen other of the 
most brilliant comedies of the centurj', in Misalli- 
ance plays a game of romantic nmsical chairs, in 
which five men make tentative proposals to two 
women during one summer afternoon for a total 
ot eight marriage proposals — and then lets his 
characters speculate wittily about which of the 
combinations might work. 

The plot stirs together at an English country 
house an aging, philandering business tycoon given 
to quoting literature at every opportunity; his 
ladylike daughter with unladylike actions; his 
self-complacent son; a spoiled brat of a young 
aristocrat, and his debonair diplomat of a father; 
a dare-devil woman acrobat with fierce ideas a- 
bout women's rights and the necessity for daily 
gymnastics, a whining, socialism-six>uting, pistol- 
brandishing bank clerk; and a young man who 
is a pattern of propriety, 

Shaw gives each of these time to speak an a- 
musingly candid piece in defense of his actions and 
views, and concentrates his wit on the daughter's 
decision as to which of two young men she will — 
a brainy, patrician wisp of a fellow or a brawny 
paragon of good manners. 

The contrast in suitors Shaw offers for her con- 
sideration recalls the anecdote — revealing the 
plaj'wright's deprecatory regard for himself as 
more brains than body — about his reply to the 
suggestion of the notable dances of liis time, Isa- 
dore Duncan, tliat they should have a cliild to- 

gether, because with his fine mind and her fine 
body they would produce a perfect offspring. 
"But," Shaw replied, according to the legend, 
"what if the child should have your mind and my 
body ?" 

Eugenics, however, is not dealt with in Misalli- 
ance, only the subject that was Shaw's favorite, 
and is always everybody else's — what sort of com- 
bination will result in a satisfactory marriage? 

Pat Freni (Mr. Tarleton) will be seen as the in- 
terloctor. so to speak, of Shaw's matrimonial min- 
strel show, in the role of the business magnate at 
whose house the romantic attachments are 
shaken up. 

Kendall March (Hypatia), David Kalish (John- 
ny) and Judy Rosenblatt (Mrs, Tarleton) will ap- 
pear respectively as his vivacious daughter, his 
smug son and his wife who thinks a cup of tea is 
the answer to every crisis. 

Louis Trapani (Bentley Summerhays) will por- 
tray the foppish suitor and Alfred Gingold (Lord 
Summerhays) his disapproving father, a man who 
has governed huge colonies but can't govern his 
son. Peter Spar (Joey Percival) will depict the 
brawny young man, Judy Onessimo (Lina) the 
formidable woman athlete, and Tom Hanson 
(Gunner the ineffectual socialist). 

Vincent Brann is directing the romantic spoof- 
ing, and Peter Vagenas designing the comedy's 
scenery, representing a terrace of an English 
country house on a summer Saturday afternoon 
in 1909. 

Hampshire Awarded Federal Grant 

A $64,408 federal grant has been awarded Hampshire 
College for development of the concept of an experiment- 
ing and extended college library. 

The grant, awarded by the 
U.S. Office of Education through 
its Bureau of Research, will sup- 
port the first phase of a three- 
year research project which will 
investigate and evaluate current 
data on college libraries and re- 
late this information to Hamp- 
shire requirements. The results 
are expected to be published as 
a Hampshire College Working 
Paper, The Making of a Library. 

Project director will be Robert 
S. Taylor, who lias been named 
director of the Hampstiire Col- 
lego library, effective September 
1. Mr. Taylor is presently associ- 
ate librarian and director of the 
Center for the Information Sci- 
ences, Lehigh University. 

Hampshire's dual aim, to be an 
innovative force in private liberal 
education and to spur further de- 
velopment of interinstitutional co- 
operation in the Connecticut Val- 
ley, demands a radically new at- 
titude toward library function and 
use. says Hampshire president 
Franklin Patterson. "We believe 
that there may be unrealized op- 
portunities for the undergraduate 
college library to contribute to 
the educational process. Hamp- 
shire College will plan a library 
which will try to break down 
some traditional barriers to in- 
corporate technological advances 
and to respond to the changing 
demands of its users. It will be 
designed to serve the growing 
needs of the greater five-college 
community (Amherst, Mount Hol- 
yoke and Smith Colleges and the 
University of Massachusetts) and 
to be a catalyst for and an active 
partner in interinstitutional op-

Uggams, Ryder Come to Campus 

Ron LaBrecque 
Collegian News Editor 

With many weeks of summer 
sun, sand, surf, and beverage 
still remaining before vacation- 
ing Umies return to campus. 
Homecoming festivities seem dis- 
tant. But to homecoming com- 
mittee chairman Mike Garjian 
and his staff consisting of Jeff 
Humber, vice-chairman, Mary 
Sheila Ryan, secretary, and Pat 
McMahon, treasurer, the gala 
weekend is rapidly approaching 
with much work yet to be done. 

Garjian, returning from San 
Francisco, yesterday released 
the committee's preliminary 
plans for 1967 Homecoming. Fea- 
tured during the weekend is a 
float parade, pre-game rally, two 
concerts, two dances, and private 
fraternity and residence hall so- 
cial functions. 

Garjian announced that con- 
tracts for two headliners are 
close to finalization. Only two 
names have been released at this 
time. They are Mitch Ryder, who 
will perform at the Saturday eve- 
ning concert, and Leslie Ug- 
gams. who will head the Sunday 
aftertK>on show. Mitch Ryder, 
whose hits include "Sock it to 
me baby" and "Too many fish 
in the Sea" promises to be a 
most exciting exhibition of "to- 
day's sound". 

Miss Uggams has been ac- 
claimed by Life magazine as 
being the most wanted star on 
Broadway. She will be taking 

time from her work in New York 
to make this exclusive appear- 
ance at the University. It was 
announced that another act will 
appear with Miss Uggams. 

Although no names may be re- 
leased at this time, it was 
learned that one of the concerts 
may feature "a very big name in 
nightclub comedians". 

Garjian stated that there is a 
possibility of a nationally ac- 
claimed syncronized light and 
sound show for either the Friday 
or Saturday night dance. 

As final contracts are signed, 
the names of those performers 
who will appear at the "big 
weekend of the fall semester" 
will be announced. 

UMass Awarded 
Defense Dept. Project 

Massachusetts Senator Edward M. Kennedy and Con- 
gressman Silvio 0. Conte announced yesterday that the 
University of Massachusetts has been awarded a Depart- 
ment of Defense contract to participate in the important 
national "Project Themis." 

In competition with 171 institu- 
tions, UMass and approximately 
40 other institutions throughout 
the country were named as 
"centers of excellence" and as 
a group will share a total of 20 
million dollars to conduct re- 
search projects for the Depart- 
ment of Defense. UMass and 
Darthmouth College were the 
only New England institutions 

Under Project Themis, the 
UMass School of Engineering is 
expected to receive at least 
$600,000 for the next three years 
to carry out interdisciplinary re- 
search on deep sea submersibles.

marks at Amherst College. 

But the University is not devoid of aca- 
donic reform. According to students who 
served last Spring on the Faculty Senate 
Academic Matters Committee "a lot of 
good stuff is coming." 

But while hopeful signs have appeared 
for Ihe solution o!f the problems created by 
too severe a regime of sdence-math re- 
quirements, for the solution of the pre- 
tenses of academic advising, for "pass-fail" 
courses, too little attention has been given 
foy students to the problems of grades. 

AmAierst previously had a lOO-point 
numerical system, whidh some proponents 
of the 4-point UMass scale cite as the awful 

alternative. But realistically no one is ad- 
vocating a lOO^point marking scale. Am- 
herst will now use nine letter grades— cer- 
tainly offering more precise evaluation 
than our four grades. 

The nine provide for six separate levels 
olf evaluation for honors work and then the 
three other levels, "C," "D," and "F." 

The plain fact is that professors liking 
just the four marks, 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, and 4.0, 
could still give them under practically any 
overall system". But a more precise system 
would offer the opportunity not now af- 
forded of more exact grades for those 
courses where it would be the normal thing 
to do and for those professors who believe 
they can be more exact. 

The question students should raise is 
"Why shouMn't UMass have A+, A, A—, 
B+, B, and B— ?" 

Summer Arts Program 
Features Translator's Work 

An apparently knowledgeable and obviously receptive audience 
composed primarily of faculty, staff, NX>EA Institute, and other non- 
student types, heard translators discuss their work earlier this week. 

The •tunmer arts symposium beg^an with a humorous presenta- 
tion <a problems by Alex Page, UMass associate professor of Engfllsh 
and translator of Three Plays by the German expresskmist play- 
WTlglit, Ernest Barlach. 

He presented the problem of what one does with a German or- 
gsn grinder that has a German Accent. One out, he suggested, is to 
make the organ grinder a downeast-accented vagalwnd. 

•niree of the panel participants especially stressed the need to 
"write" poetry when translating poetry. Bobert Bagg, UMass assist- 
ant iwofessor of English and a translator of classical Greek plays, 
and Willis Bamstone, UMass visiting professor of comparative litera- 
ture and romance languages, a translator of modem lyrical poetry, 
dealt with the problems of poetry translation. 

Hogg pointed out the need for contemporary translation of the 
classics and their frequently updating. He drew an analogy between 
tile task £Uid a beautiful woman.

Student Takes Stand for Chairs 

To the Editor: 

On hot days, one of tine few comfortable places to study on cam- 
pus is the library. I mean the air is comfortable — the chairs aren't. 

After a few hours, the effort of sitting upright at a desk be- 
comes too much and the typical student (namely me) shuffles over 
to the Student Union, tries to read, but because of the heat, falls 
asleep on a couch in the Ctolonial Lotmge. 

To facilitate the pursuit of academic excellence, to help students 
widen their horizons and derrieres and uplift their cumes, I think 
we should have comfortable chairs and couches put in the library 

for the summer. ,. . ^ ^ ,. u *u. 

There's a very simple, uncomphcated way to aocompliaJi this 
end. Since there are so many buildings (complete with furniture) 
that aren't being used durhig the summer, we just take a few chairs 
out of tiiem, put them in the Ubrary, and return them in September. 

Then everyone wiU be happy. 

Pangk>ssily yours, 

Gena Corea

Two years ago JeA Smith, a 
UM summer student from TofM- 
vUle, went skiing. Skttnt: Is his 
favorite hobby, but this trip end- 
ed in disaster: a fall which broke 
his neck and oompletely para- 
lysed his body. He was told that 
he would never walk again. 

Today Jeff Smith is a sopbo- 
more and an active member of 
the Summer Student Executive 
Council. He is walking and has 
gone back to his favorite hobby. 

How does a human being re- 
act to personal disaster? How 
does he overcome an accident 
which could have landed him tn 
a wheelchair for the rest of his 

Jeff was In the hospital for 
three months. He had two holes 
drilled in his head In order that 
a pair of tongs with a twenty 
pound weight oould be attached. 
The doctors attending htan had 
no idea whether the crushed ver- 
tebrae could be restored in this 
manner. But Jeff Smith is a 
young man with intense confi- 
dence in himself and, through- 
out the entire experience, he 
never lost sight of the motivat- 
ing force In his life: the desire 
"to do whatever I do to the beat 
of my ability— to woric within 
my limitations at full capacity." 

Jeff never gave up in his strug- 
gle with disaster and pulled him- 
self through a nighitniare by the 
force of his own personality. 

When Jeff left the hospital, he 


spent several months in bed. He 
was told that another head in- 
jury would destroy the acootn- 
plishnnents whi<^ his will power 
had achieved. A year later he 
was in an automobile accident. 
But fate and will power again 
kept him from losing the pre- 
cious gains he had made the year 

Today Jeff is enjoying life and 
he is active as a nvember of the 
Summer Student Executive 
Council (JFK Upper). A mem- 
ber of the Constitutions Com- 
mittee, he believes that the 
Council should establish a hier- 
archy of priorities with which 
to concern itself this summer. 

"You can only do so mudi In 
the summer and we have already 
used iq> two weeks. We have to 
be realistic and try to accom- 
plish a few things well rather 
than many things poorly." 

Jeff sees two basic problems 
with wiiich the Council sliould 
concern itself. 

The f irat is the ifailure to proip- 
erly integrate swing - shift 
freshnien into the University 
community. Although much has 
been done towards this end, he 
feels that the basic problem re- 
mains unresolved. 

The second problem is the 
lack of coordination in the many 
activities sponsored during the 
summer: "Some weeks the cam- 
pus is overwhelmed with events 
designed to make summer school 

an enjoyable experience while 
other weeks pass with little ac- 
tivity." He feels that the answer 
is better coordination anu»g the 
various bouses and the Univer- 
sity Program Office. 

In general, however, Jeff has 
no fund£unental ccanplaints with 
the University: "We have good 
teachers, good f£u:ilitie8, and 
good kids, and this makes life 
here enjoyable." 

Jeff has two goals in life: to 
become an engineering architect 
and "to enjoy those things which 
keep life from becoming a bor- 
ing affair." But like all students 
he finds himself restless and 
drifting from time to time: "I 
don't kiiow — I guess this is be- 
cause I don't understand myself ." 

In any case Jeff is not wor- 
ried aibout the future because he 
has made a future possible for 
himself by overcoming personal

^Louisiana Story' 
Comes to S. U. Ballroom 

By TOM LINDSEY, 'Statesman' Reporter 

"The Louisiana Story", presented at the S.U. Ballroom 
Monday night, tells of a young Cajun boy and the events 
following the arrival of an oil drilling barge near his home. 
The boy, Joseph Boudreaux, is cautious but curious, and 
soon makes friends with the crew. 

A!fter many days of drilling, the crew reach a gas pock- 
et, which forces a temporary shut down in drilling. The gas 
pocket is bypassed, however, and the well is finally brought 
in. The movie ends with the dismantling of the rig, and the 
boy watching it being moved out of the bayou.

ent from most feature movies 
because it avoids the hackneyed 
plots seen in so many movies. 
There is no father-son conflict be- 
cause the boy wants to leave the 
bayou and see the world. The 
family doesn't move out of its 
riverfront shack and become a 
nouveau-rlche family with mon- 
ey problems. 

What director Robert Flaherty 
has done is to create a film 
study of the Cajun way of life. 
It is though he had focused 
cameras on the Boudreaux fam- 
ily and the oil crew, and then 
edited his film to create a story. 

He has spent mone time in the 
film showing what he considers 
in^>ortant. He was able to show 
the boy exploring the bayou 
country. He can take the time to 
show the boy wrestling unsuc- 
cessfully to bring an alligator on 

He can spend five minutes or 
so showing the oU rig crew lay- 
ing new pipe down the drill 
shaft; not for dramatic purpose 
(will we strike oU before our op- 
tion runs out?), but because the 
precision and the efficiency of 
the crew, as weU as the weird 
cacaphony of noises from the 
rig, made it an awe Inqrirlng 

The only criticiam that I 
would make is tihe garbled and 
practically inaudible sound re- 
cording on location.

Stamp Issued 

CONCX)RD, Mass. ofl— Henry 
David Thoreau, who once wrote 
"I could easily do without the 
post office," is commemorated 
with a five-cent postage stam.p 
that went on sale yesterday, the 
150th anniversary of ihis birth. 

The Concord Post Office has 
15 million stamps ready to be 
sold to collectors seeking firet- 
day cancellations. 

Interest in the stamp has been 
stimulated by a controversy over 
its depiction of Thoreau. Critics 
claim the artist, Leonard Barl^in, 
Smith College art professor, 
made the essayist-philosopher 
look like a beatnik. 

Ceremonies were at the lawn 
of the First Parish Church, 
where Thoreau was Christened 
and where his funeral service 
was held. Richard J. Murphy, 
U.S. assistant postmaster gen- 
eral, will speak. 

There were also a reading 
from Thoreau's writings and a 
solo on the flute, an instrument 
he played. 

A post office specialist from 
Washington used a special 
machine to postmark first day 
covers. He will stay cis long as 
July 20 cancelling with a July 
12 date, the only instance a 
stamp's postmark date can dif- 
fer from the actual date of can-

The Wallfisch Duo occupies a singular place in today's music 
world. They are dedicated to making better luiown the music 
for viola and piano, old and new. Ernst Wallfisch, German-bom 
American violist, luis appeared with symphonies and chamber 
orchestras in thirteen countries on several continents. 
More than just an accompanist, Lory Wallfisch turned to the 
harpsichord in addition to the piano, in order to do justice to 
music of the earlier period. 

Prior to joining the faculty at Smith College three years ago, 
Ernst Wallfisch taught viola at the Conservatory of Lucerne and 
was on the faculty of the Mozarteum in Salzburg. 

Parents See Movie at Orientation 

by PAT PETOW, 'Statesman' Editor 

As a part of its freshman orientation session, the Uni- 
versity offers a program of corresponding orientation for 
the parents. 

For many of the parents, as 

for many students, the first trip 
to the campus is an introduction 
in itself to the University. 

But the Counseling Office has 
also planned in-depth opportuni- 
ties for the parents. They may 
meet with the ciu4>Uuna, they 
may discuss financial aid, they 
may hear a discussion of dormi- 
tory living by heads of resi- 
dences and floor counselors. 
They meet other parents, they 
may eat at the Dining Commons. 

Not neglected in the parents' 
orientation Is an opportunity to 
see the campus. A bus tour is 
conducted for those who are in- 
terested as well as a movie on 
the University. 

The film shown yesterxiay 
morning was made by wnC-TV 
in Hartford in 1965. This was the 
period of the University's history 
that the Boston branch had just 
opened, the medical School site 
had just been selected, Hamp- 
shire College plans were being 
announced, and construction had 
begun on the SW Complex 

As George Plantinga '69 who 
ran the film observed, "Ob- 
viously, changes liave been made 

The film is representative of 
the University's growth — the 
construction and appropriations 
discussed are like the present ex- 
pansion except for changes In 
the names, shapes, and costs of 
the buildings. 

One ironical note to the show- 
ing stands out. The interview 
with President John W. Lederle, 
Provost Oswald Tippo, Dean of 
Admissions William Tunis, and 
Dean of Administration Leo Red- 
fern centered on physical expan- 
sion and increased student en- 

Describing architects' draw- 
ings of the Fine Arts BuUding, 
Lederle stated: "We expect to 
get money for this mt the next 
legislature." The Univenity is 
still waiting two years later for 
the $8.5 million dollars it needs. 

Lederle and the interviewers 
agreed that the building would 
be the architectural focal point 
of its side of the campus. 

About twenty couples of par- 
ents viewed the movie yesterday 
morning. They were exposed to 
remarks by the president on his 
concepts of a state university — 
higher education sjrstcm. In 
other oooTunents by the provost, 
the parents heard of a growing 
shortage of faculty. 

Intimatkms of the cost of pub- 
lic education wne dear oven- 
tones of the administrators dis- 
cussion. At the same time, the 
number of aH>licants to liie Uni- 
versity were presented with both 
a feeling of concern and pride.

Folk Picnic Turnout 
Disappoints Planners

"Disappointing" was the word most frequently muttered by people trying to de-

SSK Reports No Phones For The Summer 

Despite its best efforts, the Summer Student Executive Council has not been able 
to get administrative approval for turning on the room phones for the last six weeks of 

the summer. 

Buddy Vaughan, chairman of the S«rvices Committee, reported at last week's meet- 
ing that the Board of Trustees will not meet again until August and would not be able 
to approve the phone idea in time. In his opinion the best that can be done is to have the 
use of pay phones initiated on each floor instead of on alternate floors of the SW towers. 

But the councilor also reported on the successful effort of his committee to have 
special fall I.D.'s for the Swing Shift freshmen. 

Dean of Students William F. Field, according to Vaughan, has approved of the is- 
suance of the identification cards and also of a reduction in football tickets for holders 
of the special cards. 

Vaughan informed the Council that a report would soon be 
made on the current towing procedures. 

In other Council action, the new Summer Judiciary was sworn- 
in. The eleven members include: Charles Hopkins, Stanley Levco, 
Peter McOIynn, Phil Oirdolo, Alan Anderson, Harvey Gold, Sonnie 
Salandas, Lee Riley, Lila MacClean, Donna Varllanquart, and Gena 

By a large majority, the student government approved the bill, 
sponsored by Frank Gori (JFK Upper), to allow open houses once a 
week during the summer. The act now goes to the dean of students 
and other administrative officials for approval. 

Earlier hi the ISpring, a similar bUl by the Student Senate went 
on the route for approval but no word has yet been released. The 
Senate bill would leave the frequency of open houses up to dorm 

While a constitutional amendment to allow grad students, resid- 
ing on campus, to have representatives in the summer government 
passed, the entire SSEC constitution is in the process of revision. 

Eleven other constitutions of SW governments received endorse- 
ment, leaving Calvin Coolidge Upper, the only house without a 
oonstitution okayed by the SSEC. 

The summer government will meet again tomorrow night in- 
stead of Wednesday due to the upcoming examinations. 

The food for the iHcnic included 
barbecued chicken, potato sialad, 
cole slaw, rolls, lemonade, and 
chocolate sundaes; service was 
ordered for 300. Some of the 
unused food can be returned; 
some will have to be paid for by 
the SSEC. Minimal losses for the 
picnic have been estimated at 

At 10:00 p.m.. the SSEC spon 
sored a showing of Alfred Hitch- 
cock's The Birds. Originally, this 
film was supposed to be a part 
of the picnic, with the admission 
price to the movie included in 
the general $2:00 fee for the pic 
nic. However, when the fiscal 
clouds darkened, it was decided, 
that a $.50 separate admission 
fee to the movie would have to 
be charged in order to avoid any 
further losses. 

Carol Robinson. SSEC social 
chairman, served as chairman 
of the picnic. The force behind 
the evening, however, was sup- 
plied by Hugh Connerty. SSEC 

"I am tremendously disap- 
pointed in the turnout tonight," 
said Connerty. "The SSEC did an 
excellent job in the planning and 
publicity of the event, but the 
students just don't care. Every- 
one complains that there's noth- 
ing to do; then, when something 
is done for them, they don't par- 
ticipate. The blame for the fail- 
ure of this iricnlc rests entirely 
with the students." 

Not everyone agreed with Con- 
nerty, however. One swing shift 
Freshman said he didn't think 
much of the turnout, and felt that 
the poor publicity and inadequate 
organization by the SSEC were 

the reasons for the poor atten- 

Gary Bombardier, past Student 
Senate Treasurer, also felt the 
SSEC did not do its job correctly. 
"There was not adequate plan- 
ning for an event of this size. 
Two dollars per person is a pro- 
hibitive price, and this also kept 
the turnout low," Bombardier 
noted. "They should have put on 
something that would have been 
more agreeable to the tastes of 
the general campus, at least for 
their first event." 

Mike Garjian, Homecoming 
Committee chairman, also said 
the turnout was disappointing. 
"The Exec Council did their job." 
Garjian observed, "but the stu- 
dents just didn't respond." 

Whatever the reasons and with 
whomever lies the blame, it was 
generally agreed that the folk 
picnic was more of a disappoint- 
ment than a success. Connerty 
indicated that if this response by 
the students was to be typical, 
that other planned SSEC events 
might have to be cancelled.

About 125 high school students

recently established their own 
student government. 

Members of the program are 
housed at Greenough and Chad- 
bourne dormitories. The session, 
sponsored by the Office of Econ- 
omic Opportunity, is designed to 
provide a pre-coUege setting to 
introduce selected students of 
college potential to higher learn- 

A student government consist- 
ing of twelve representatives, 
chosen by corridor, and four of-

Also a part of the government 
are two resident counselors, each 
holding one vote, and two admin-

leges. All are elected by the Stu-

Cease Fire Follows Two Violent Days 

. -.- 1- • t t.4 »~_ tU 


Egyptian and Isrseli guns along the Suez Canal 
remained silent Sunday under a U. N. cease fire 
that took effect after two days of savage air bat 
ties and artillery duels. Israeli newspapers linked 
the fighting with Israel's struggle for rights to 
free shipping in the canal. 

In Cairo, the Egyptian government said the 
fighting on Saturday killed 24 civilians and 
wounded 98. It said 26 persons were killed and 36 
were wounded in fighting Friday- some of them 

The Israelis reported eight soldiers killed and 
42 wounded in the two days of clashts. 

U.N. truce supervisors under Lt. Oen. Odd Bull 
of Norway set up headquarters In a hotel at Is- 
mailia on the Egyptian side of the canal. Observ- 
ers will take up piosttions on both sides of t»«j 
104-n^llle) waterway to watch for any ceaB«>-llre 

Egyptians and Israelis have fought for three 
weekends in a row along the canal, breaching the 
U.N. cease-fire that ended the iix-day Middle 
East war on June 10. The new cease-fire was 
worked out by both sides Satuix? ..: night through 
the United Nations in New York. 

In an editorial commenting on the fighting, 
the Isrseli newspaper Haaretz said: "Israel must 
make it clear to the world that Israeli ships will 
henceforth ply the Suez Canal." 

Israel haa been barred from using the canal 
since it was nationalized by Egypt in 1966. 

"Egypt is breaking international law by blocking 
the canal so as to force maritime powers to make 
Isnel withdraw from the eastern bank," Haaretz 

"One of Isrjel's condiitions for peace is free pass- 
age through the canal, and by staying on the east- 
em bank we achieve the strongest possible bar- 
gaining point"

Organized Crime Hurts Airlines 


WASHINGTON WB — The airline ticket sales industry has been hit, and hit hard, for the first 
time by what it believes to be organized crime. 

In recent months thousands of airline tickets have been stolen, and hundreds sold — some to 
gullible citizens, others to persons deUberately seeking black market travel bargains. 

A dozen individuals have been arrested in Los Angeles, Miami, Boston and New Jersey. Oiarges 
against some are punishable by prison terms up to 15 years. One relatively minor offender has re- 
ceived a six-months jail sentence. . 

More arrests are Ukely in the near future, says the Air Transport Association, trade organizaUon 

of the scheduled airlines. 

Richard Comerford, an association investigator, said the current wave of stolen ticket sales is so 
well organized that It plainly Is the work of a ring. "This seems to point to a Cosa Nostra-type or- 
ganization," he said. 

"There have always been chislers, in airline tickets as well as in most other commodities. But un- 
til recently, it was usually the work of some individual, some kid who thinks he can slip something by. 

"Now, for the first time, there is a definite intelligence organization bdhind this. It is no longer 
just a case of some guy stealing for a living." 

Comerford said that since last faU more than 5,000 airline tickets have been stolen from travel 
agencies. Their potential value runs Into millions of dollars. 

In one theft of seven tickets, the actual loss to the airlines was about $6,000. In another case, 10 
tickets for transportation between Los Angeles and Hong Kong were recovered before use. Their 
combined value was almost $10,000. 

Comerford esthnated that about 800 of the tickets were used by purchasers before the airlines 

identified them as stolen. . , , ^. .^ *u 

Some of the passengers have made refunds. The carriers are preparing legal action against others. 

Most of the cases have been in

state courts. Comerford seiid that 
when the organized activities 
came to light, he took them up 
with federal officers but was told 
there apparently was no outright 
violation of federal law. 

Under a standard ticket and 
accounting system, travel agents 
are supplied with smsill plates 
.bearing the names and code 
numbers of all airlines. The a- 
gent uses a ticket imprinter, 
with a plate, to trcmsform the 
standard ticket into a ticket for 
a particular airline. 

Hence, stolen forms can be 
used in wide variations. 

Additionally, Comerford relat- 
ed that last fall, for the first 
time, the airlines encountered 
sale of altered airline tickets on 
a scale large enough to indicate 
activity by an organized team. 

In a typical transaction, the 
offender would buy a round-trip

urday night was a general dis- 
appodntment to the majority olf 
the i>eople who attended it. The 
combination oif hdgih cost, a 
lack of big name entertain- 
ment and poor plamndinig on the 
part of the SSBC created little 
interest in tlhls event. 

The Folk-Picnic was the first 
big challenge testing the ability 
of the SSEC, and they failed to 
meet their challenge. 

In comparison to this poorly 
planned FolkiPkaiic, the major 
sociai event of the suanmer of 
1966, Las Vegas Nlte was a 
huge success. 

This activity was a recrea- 
tion of a gambling scene in 
Harold's Club in Reno (fai. 
money of course). The night 
took approximately two months 
of planning and hard work on 
the part of not only the chair- 
man of the event Da\id Barth- 

olomew and the SSEC but the 
entire student body. 

The reason that the Folk- 
Picniic can also be considered 
a major event was the high 
cost involved in its plannimg. 
Yet this event was poorly and 
hastily planned in a mere two 

The SSE(' now faces a major 
responsibility in meeting its ob- 
ligation by planning ev^its that 
every student can and will en-

effort on the part of all.

After telephoning the airline 
to make sure he had the right 
price, he would raise the ticket 
value to $137.40 and seek a buy-

Boosts Volpe 
For President 

BOSTON OB — Atty. Gen. El- 
liot L. Richardson said Sunday 
he believes Republican Gov. John 
A. Volpe should actively seek the 
GOP presidential nomination — 
not the vice presidency. 

Richardson said Gov. Volpe 
"has accomplished as much or 
more in public achievement as 
anyone now being considered." 

Richardson, interviewed on a 
Boston telecast "Point of View" 
on WKBG-TV said he believes 
the New Hampshire primary 
would be a good starting point 
for Volpe. 

Volpe has indicated recently an 
interest in filling out the national 
ticket as a vice presidential can- 
didate. He and Michigan Gov. 
George Romney have been at 
odds as to whether the other 
should enter the New Hampshire 
primary. Neither has said his 
plans in the Granite State. 

Richardson said Volpe's recent 
absences from Massachusetts 
may have some bearing on the 
slowness of the current legisla- 
tive session. But he added. "We 
must recognize that this is the 
first year of a four year term 
and the administration must 
think of the long range span."

It Shouldn't Happen To A Dog 

[Editor's Note: The follounng column appeared in the Springfield 

Union, and the views expressed are not necessarnly those of the 

Statesman Editors. Nonetheless, we thought it to be an interesting 

commentary on the problems— <ind solutions — of today's moralistic 

society. ) 

by Abigail Van Buren 

Dear Abby: I am 29 years old and oh boy! to have a problem like 

this at my age shouldn't happen to a dog. 

I am expecting a baby and I am not married. That is not all. 
The boy's father is a Mexican and doesn't speak a word of Engli^. 
He washes dishes in a restaurant. I don't speak any Spanish, so 
there is no communication between us at all. 

Two questions: If my frieiid d(>e»n't marry me, please send the 
name of the nearest home for unwtMl mothers. If he does marry nie, 
we will keep the baby, so you can skip the home for unwed mothers. 
But I would like to know where he can learn English. 

Dear Needs Help: The home for unwed mothers nearest you is the 
Salvation Army's Booth Memorial Home. (It is listed in your tele- 
phohe directory.) Your friend can learn English by enrolling in an 
adult education class at night school. And it mipht be a gtxxl idea for 
you to enroll in Spanish class. It's time you two established some 
verbal communication.

Sox Smash Tigers 

BOSTON (;«— Tony Conigliaro's 
three-run homer sparked a five- 
run third inning burst that car- 
ried the Boston Red Sox to a 
9-5 victory over sloppy-fielding 
Detroit Sunday, stretching the 
Tiger's losing streak to six 

Carl Yastrzemski clubbed his 
21st homer — a bases-empty shot 
in the seventh — for the Red Sox, 
who have won five of their last 
six starts. 

Reggie Smith and Mike Ryan 
singled to open the big third and 
the bases were loaded when 
pitcher Darrel Brandon bunted 
and Detroit starter Joe Sparma 
threw to third too late. 

Mike Andrews singled home 
one run, and a second scored 
when left fielder Willie Horton 
hobbled the ball for an error. 
Conigliaro then lifted a high shot 
that just reached the top of the 
left field wall for his 15th home 

Two errors on the same play 
by shortstop Ray Oyler helped 
the Red Sox to three more runs, 
one of them earned, in the fourth. 

The Tigers pecked away with 
Horton's Uth homer in the sec- 
ond, an unearned run in the 
fourth and two more runs in the 
sixth that drove the Boston right- 
hander from the mound. 

Rookie Sparky Lyle came on 
to preserve Brandon's third vic- 
tory in 11 decisions, although 
yielding a ninth inning homer by 
Mickey Stanley.

Leon Barron read poems abont

Whitmore Hall, the massive new UM adminis- 
tration building, is rapidly nearing completion. 
Most of the offices on the top two floors of the 
three s1;ory, exposed-concrete structure are al- 
ready conducting University business. 

UMass offiicials accepted the uppermost parts of 
the building from D. O'Conneli's Sons, Inc., con- 
tractors, early In June, and began to occupy them 
hnmedlately. All administrative offices of l^Mass 
should be centralized in Whitmore by the begin- 
ning of the fall semester, according to George A. 
Norton, associate director, physical plant. 

The $2.75 million building, says Norton, boasts 
over 115,000 square feet of floor space. A 482-ton 
air-conditioning unit is needed to cool the spacious 
interior. Most observers agree that the appearance 
of Whitmore is impressive, although a small mi- 
nority find the design, a creation of Campbell & 
Aldrich of Boston, less than beautiful. The build- 
ing is brickless, excepting for trim, and is the first 
of its type on the campus. 

Little free si)ace will remain in the building af- 
ter the administration's moving job is completed 
in September, according to Robert W. Kittle, as- 

sistant to the treasurer, and a new occupant of 
Whitmore. Since the original design was accepted 
several years ago, the UM administrative services 
have grown rapidly. Before long, some of the ex- 
panding administration may have to be de-cen- 
tralized and moved to other quarters. 

Kittle says that the top floor of Whitmore is oc- 
cupied by the highest administrative offices— the 
President, the Treasurer, the Dean of AdnUnis- 
tratlon. Purchasing and .Vc<'ountlng, the Planning 
Office, the News office. Institutional Studies, and 
the Provost. The second floor will house the Dean 
of Students. Placement and Financial Aid, Hous- 
ing, the Cashier, the Registrar, Admissions, and 
part of Guidance and Counseling. 

The first floor will contain a large IBM comput- 
er area, including a new IBM 360, and the dupli- 
cating, mailing, and publication services. 

Still awaiting appropriations from the state leg- 
islature are plans to build a divided boulevard be- 
tween North Hadley Rd. and North Pleasant St. 
to serve Whitmore, a new parking area, and a 
landscaped mall between Whitmore and the 
School of Business Administration.

Council Strives For Weelcly Open House 

By Gary Bombardier 
^Statesnum' Reporter 

The Summer Student Execu- 
tive Council waited forty min- 
utes in vain Tuesday evening 
for one additional member to 
show up for its scheduled meet- 
ing. When the additional mem- 
ber failed to show up, the meet- 
ing was cancelled for lack of a 

An informal meeting was 
held, however, at which an- 
nouncements were made and 
committee reports were read. 

Dave Bartholomew, SSEC 
President, led off the meeting 
with a stinging criticism of the 
members who had failed to 
show up. 

"If the Cooncillors do not at- 
tend these meetings, we cannot 
conduct the business necessary 
to make summer school enjoy- 
able and productive for the 
students. This apathy on the 
part of the Councillors Is very 

frustrating for those of us who 
would like to see the SSEC ac- 
complish something this sum- 

He urged members to attend 
the next meeting at 7 P. M. on 
July 26 and warned that three 
absences was cause for expul- 
sion from the Council. 

President Bartholomew also 
announced a crack-down on 
those members who were fail- 
ing to fulfill their responsibili- 
ties to the Council and to their 

"Too few members of this 
body are carrying too heavy a 
load of the work. We intend to 
get this work done and we In- 
tend to see that everyone car- 
ries a fair share of the load. If 
certain people do not want to 
work, then I would advise them 
to resign so that we can get 
someone who will do It." 

Discussikm was concentratied 
upon two lis.sues during the 

informal meeting: the Folk 
Picnic and open houses. 

B3cavise of various mdx-ups 
with regard to ticket sales, 
the only tihing which couild be 
ascertained with certaiinity with 
regAivl to the Folk picnic was 
that it had been a fiinancial 
loss for the Counoiil. Hugh 
Connerty, SSEXZ: Treasurer, in- 
dicated that the loss was in 
the neighborhood of $205.00 
and could go higher. 

Buddy Vaughan (Commut- 
ers), Chairman of the Services 
Committee, announced that 
William W. Barnard, staff 
assistant to the Associate Dean 
of Students, had made recom- 
mendations with regard to 
open houses to Dean of Stu- 
dents WUllam F. FieM. 

The recommendations under 
consideration by Field are that 
(1) open houses be allowed 
once a week if registered with 
the Calendar Oflfice, (2) the 

center of activity at open 
houses be confined to the 
lounge floors, (3) attendance 
be by invitation only, ( 4 ) room 
doors be required to be open 
during the open hou-ses, and 
(5) that every student be held 
responsible for insuiring his 
own conformity to Che rules 
as well as the conformiity of 
every other student. 

Students would. In other 
words, be required under the 
honor system to report any 
Infractions to the appropriate 
officials. It was also indicated 
that breach of these rules 
would be cause for suspend- 
ing further open houses. 

Vaughan stressed that the 
Council was primarily con- 
cerned wiith obtaining open 
houses on a once a week ba.sis, 
but would continue to work 
on having the policy on open 
doors amended. 

There was some discontent. 

nevertheless, with regard to 
the recommendations under 
consideration. Dave Clarke 
(Commuters) stated: "The Ad- 
ministration Is approaching 
the Idea of maturity half-way. 
They are telling us that we 
are adults, but that they want 
to watch us anyways." 

But Frank (Sort (JFK Up- 
per) stated in response: "The 
cooperation of the Adminis- 
tration, especially Dean Field, 
concerning the progress of the 
open house proposal has been 
encouraging. The Administra- 
tion favours our proposal if 
the students will accept the 

The proposal has not been 
acted upon by Field so far.

The Hungry Masses Cry Out 

Tb my fellaw workers: 

How many of you are penniless, starving workers ? In fact, 
how many part - time penniless workers are there ? 

I am appealing to any "powers" (above or below) who may 
read this and take pity on us. Why can't we be paid weekly ? 

(I asked the treasurer's office lady and she said the treasurer's 
office has too much to do now.) Because of this, many students 
have to starve and borrow to pay bills until that far-off, glorious 
day in the middle of next mponth. 

Why can't you "powers" hire more people and reorganize the 
payrollers to a weekly schedule ? A great many empty - stomached 
students and empty - handed landlords will appreciate it. 

Thank you, 

Ruth Topham 

Full time and starved. 

P. S. It would help if you fellow workers would "arise" and 
"Rght fOT your rights", etc.

Sam Sparc Speaks Out 

How Is lt~Really 

"Of course I leave my door open during: open

"That's a good question," said I. "What are 
they for?" 

"Why to have a pleasant conversation with 
your date In a homey atmo^here. Also your date 
may want to examine your walls, floor, and cell- 
ing to see how they comfiare with hers." 

"Isn't there any other reason for an open 
house ?" I asked innocently. 

"Offhand, I can't think of any others," he re- 

I eyed him nervously and then finally spewed 
forth what had been on my mind. 

"I've heard that some guys use the open house 
as a place to bring their dates so that they can 
hold hands and sometimes even kiss in private." 

He was stunned. I could tell I had olTended him. 
I apologized and explained that I just had to find 
out if there was any truth to these stories. 

He appeared a little more at ease and said, "I've 
heard those ugly rumors too. But I can assure 
you, there's no truth to them. Everybody I know 
keeps his door open when he has a girl in the 

I must admit I was disappointed. It appeared 
that all those stories I'd heard about rampant illi- 

cit sex during open houses were untrue. But I de- 
cided to make one last-ditch effort. 

"Don't you know of even one guy closing his 
door with a date in the room ?" I pleaded. 

Suddenly it struck him. "Oh yeah. The flrst op- 
en house of the year. There was a guy on our

kissing her — on the Ups !"

Noise Racks Southwest 

One of the most serious issues this summer at the University is the noise situation in the South- 
west Residential College. This problem evolves from poor architectural plannmg. 

The physical structure of the dormitories is such that any noise bounds off one building to 
another Adding to the problem is the lack of absorbing material to contain the noise m and out- 
side the dorms The area outside the dorms mainly consists of cement which carries sound at a 
greater rate than if the area was largely grassed- in. The closeness of the buildings and the wmdows 
facing each other, especially being open during the sunruner, does not aid in rectifying the noise situation. 

Presently, little can be done 
to correct the physical layout of 
the Southwest Residential Col- 
lege, yet something can and 
should be done by the dorm 
residents in the form of a 
change in attitude towards the 

The heart of the matter in- 
volves a complete lack of con- 
sideration on the part of indi- 
viduals towards fellow residents 
along with a disregard for the 
observance of quiet hours. 

A counselor from John Adams 
commented, "The girls from 
T4 will play their stereos at 
maximum output just to attract 
attention. They are affecting 
some 400 students and should be 
brought before judiciary." A 

Want to know 
what's going 

on r 

Join the 

resident of John Quincy Adams 
commented: "Even during quiet 
hours the noisy games of fris- 
bee, the blaring record-players 
and the general commotion on 
the lounge floors continue with 
little regard for those trying to 
study or sleep." 

A counselor can go down to 
the lounge numerous times to 
ask that the stereo be tuned 
down, but five minutes later the 
volume will return to full blast. 
In disgust the counselor will 
temporarily close the stereo 
room but once the room is re- 
opened the noise will return. 
But it is not the job of the coun- 
selor to act as a policeman. 

The only way that progress 
will be made in alleviating the 
noise is when the individual re- 
alizes that it is his obligation to 
have consideration for his fel- 
low students. 

The guys in one dorm can 
blame the girls in another dorm 
for causing the noise or vice 
versa. The summer students 
can blame the orientation 

groups, but without them the 
noise continues. The crux of the 
problem involves increased con- 
sideration on the part of all. 
Without this realization and ac- 
ceptance of responsibility all 
the physical corrections in dorm 
layout and all the disciplinary 
action will be in vain.

Here they are sayt the Chorus, David Kalish. The cast of Anti8:one: I. to r. a 
the nurse; (in the center of tiie stage) Antigone; the three guards; and Creon. 

Antigone Goes Mod 

messenger, Haemon; (knitting), the king'g wife, Ismene; (sitting on the step, alMve) 

After grabbing Antigone, tiie king tells her, "I 
should save you yet." 

Discussing what they will do with their expected 
reward for capturing the girl defying the edict, 
the guards conclude their wives will get It. 

•STATESMAN' Reviewer 

Antigone is a confusing play. To begin wltli, it is not a 
white-rot)ed Greek tragedy. The characters dress in more or 
less conventional contemporary clothes. The leading lady wears 
purple slacks and a black Jersey. The guards wear "normal" 
clothes, meant to look sloppy and dirty, but not uniforms. The 
king passes as wearing a military uniform although he looks 
more like a gas pump attendant. 

Secondly, they talk in today's Jargon even to the point of 
overdoing It. However, the most disconcerting thing about the 
play is the struggle between Antigone (Susan Spector) and 
King Creon (Bill McNulty). 

For part of the time, the king is presented as pragmatic 
and Just doing his unavoidable duty. But at the same time 
Miss Spector doesn't let Antigone get away, she isn't quite the 
insane girl her lines might make her. 

Creon can be callous and Antigone hysterical. The king 
says to her, "Scream on, daughter of Oedipus in your fathers 
own voice." And although Antigone's hysteria is more appar- 
ent — "I never doubted for an instant that you should have me 
killed"^-tihe conclusion of Jean Anouilh's version of the play 
makes obvious the king's defeat. For neither the chief charac- 
ters are there substantial overtones of the Sophoolean trilogy. 
Creon, appropriately, is neither prejudiced all-bad nor is Anti- 
gone cast as all-good. 

Thus there is a tendency to igiut;(> the warning o? the 
chorus that Creon, rather than caring about duty, hankers af- 
ter power. It seems all too reasonable to consider the problem 
as giving the masses a show, an uncovered body. This is the 
body Of Polyneloes, Antigone's brother. 

But the filial sense of duty which demands that Antigone 
cover the corpse — a feeling unshared by her beautiful sister — is 
weak. The compulsion is not supported by a s^ise of the gods 
being all about. This was the way Sophocles told the story: 
Creon was simply impious. 

Anouilh apparently Judged impiety as too old - fashioned a 
problem and sintplified it by making the tyrant power-hungry. 
In the up to date version, Creon deals wfth the people's ac- 
counting and not with his own before himself and the gods. 

Antigone sees, therefcHV, the problem of the play — Creon 
orders her to death but his order Is pronounced because of her 
insistence on taking the blame for the deed and repeating it. 

Creon is dealing with a recalcitrant daughter of Oedipus, 
not the staid general demands of the deities. Miss Spector's 
portraying a sense of determination is the saving feature of 
the role although It Is overdone. The part of Antigone's be- 
trothed also makes the question of the play at impiety versus 
loyalty in respect to the king but one of Antigone's int<'ntion 
which is essentially good versus the practical situation. 

Halmon, Creon's son, cries out why must the body be de- 
filed, the people are objecting. He does not ask the king to be 
merciful and overlook slights to his station and decrees. 

The suicides of Halmon and Creon's wife after her-.son 
which follow Antigone's neatly tie up the play as a tragedy. 
The ptty of it all was that it had to be a tragedy.

Poetry Festival Attracts Many 

A Filmy Review 

(Continued from page 1) 
the connection of the allusion to 
Europa with a picture of a bildni- 
clad model posing on a new car. 

Donald Junliins, who shared the 
afternoon with Barron and Clark, 
began with "Billy the Kid." a 
poem about Theodore Roethke 
who had been seen earlier in the 
afternoon in the film, "In a Dark 
Time." Junkins' poem reinforced 
the audience's uneasiness about 
Roethke who had looked and 
sounded like a man swaying on 
the brink of madness. Reading 
in an ominous, sometimes grim 
tone fully appropriate to such 
poems as "Autumn in Georgia" 
which told of the ordeal of Hor- 
ace Junkins in the Civil War or 
"Poem on the Death of My Fa- 
ther," the poet delivered even 
lyrical passages about childhood 
in Maine and lines on football 
with intensity. One wonders if it 
is a device for distancing auto- 
biographical content. 

Commenting that laughter is 
the only emotional reaction per- 
mitted in public, Howard Neme- 
rov began his reading Monday 
night with a barrage of epigrams 
and epitaphs that evoked less 
laughter than wry smiling. Pre- 
facing these short poems with 
lengthy explanations, Nemerov 
sounded like an unaffected, 
neighborly Yankee. But his cas- 
ual tone was a good vehicle for 
the subject of immortality in 
"The Pond" in which a bit of 
nature and its child victim give 
each other permanence in men's 

Although all the poets ex- 
pressed concern about war, Nem- 
erov's attitude was an amusing 
contrast; "On Being Asked for a 
Peace Poem" demonstrates hum 
bly and humorously that poets 
have a notoriously slight influ- 
ence on politics. Needling the 
Great Society with more good 
nature than most, Nemerov read 
"Grace to Be Said at the Super- 
market" and "Prayer before a 
Committee Meeting." 

Characterized by poet Richard 
Weber as a rare practitioner of 
"unfree" verse, Richard Wilbur 
impressed the audience with the 
range of his forms. A different 
sort of Yankee, Wilbur radiated 
the confidence of a man who 
knows he can go for hours with- 
out exhausting the first rate. He 
flattered us with "Running," a 
poem still unpublished and un-

profaned, reminding us that the 
poet learns from his hearer's re- 
sponse. His selections ranged 
from a "Miltonic Sonnet" pro- 
testing President Johnson's re- 
jection of the Peter Hurd portrait 
to "The Undead. " a gently biz- 
zare piece inspired by Dracula 
movies, to translations and 
adaptations, including a distaste- 
ful song" from the musical 
Candide and a brilliant passage 
from his version of Moliere's 

The idea for the festival came 
from Miss Sheila McRevey of 
the Student Activities Office who 
collaborated with Donald Junkins 
of the English Department to set 
the program up. With one more 
day to run, the festival is prov 
ing an immense popular success 
and a unique opportunity for the 
student of poetry to extend his 
understanding of poems by learn- 
ing more of their author's inten-

Two distinct impressions are left by the films, 
Robert Frost and A Lover's Quarrel with the 
World and In a Dark Time. They were presented 
as part of this week's poetry festival. 

The Frost film shows the poet as a man and a 
public figure, the film about poet Theodore Roeth- 
ke shows an unassuming man stifling, and some- 
times not stifling, a tendency to be theatrical. 

The work of Frost is more than poetry. It is a 
shared thing. However, Roethke's performance 
makes the audience a spectator patiently waiting 
to be amused and amused mightily when the 
punch lines come. 

Roethke lets loose with "Gob Music:" 

"I went fishing with a pin 
In the dark of an old spitton; 
Me handkerchee had fallen In 
With more than half a crown. 
I stared into the dented hole 
And what do you think I saw ? — 
A colour pure, O pure as gold, 
A colour without flaw, . . . 

1 stared and stared, and what do you think ? 
My thirst came on, and I had to drink." 

And it goes on and gets worse. 

In the film, which really was a reading, unlike 
Frost's, Roethke captures' the audience's appre- 
ciation with his: 

"The pensive srnu, the staid aardvark, 
Ac^-ept the caresses in the dark; 
The bear, equipped with paw and snout, 
Would rather take than dish it out. 

But snakes, both poisonous and g^arter, 

In love are never known to barter; 
The worm, thoufi:h dank. Is sensitive: 
His noble nature bids him give. 
But you, my dearest, have a soul 
Encompassing: fish, flesh, and fowl. 
When amorous arts we would pursue, 
You can, with pleasure, bill or coo. 
You are, in truth, one in a million. 
At once mammalian and reptilian." 

One responds to Frost with a different sort of 
warmth. He is always refreshing. He is old and 
white-haired but young because of his sense of 
humor. I was born a Democrat, he says, and am a 
Democrat, but I've been uneasy since 1896. 

The film goes to Vermont, his native state, and 
there a little boy, when asked who Robert Frost 
is, says hesitantly, "I think he is one of the most 
famous poets in Vermont." The University audi- 
ence laughed at this description. 

He was in his lifetime the nation's poet. 

The voice of his friend the president, John F. 
Kennedy, opens the film: "The great artist is 
thus a -solitary figure. He has, as Frost said, a 
lovers quarrel with the world." 

About his world. Frost said, "Every poem 
solves something for me in life It is a momen- 
tary stay against the confusion of the world," he 

His world was peaceful— always woods in which 
we would want to linger. "I see for nature no de- 
feat in one tree's overthrow," he wrote. The pro- 
duction also shows the poet, as he put it, "a 
little more country than city."

Five College Cooperation Reaches New Heights 

First Full-Time Coordinator Is Appointed 

Thomas C. MenrienhaM, president of Smitlh 
College amd oi Five Colleges, Inc., has an- 
novmced the appointmnent of North Burn of 
Oakland, CaHlilfamia, as coordiiimtxM- of the Five 
Colleges (Amlhersit, Mount Holyoke and Smith 
Colleges, the University of Massachusetts, and 
Hampsihire Colllege whicth is expected to open in 

Bum, wiho will assume 'his duties September 
first, is now vice president and jsecretary of 
Mills College in Oakland where he is in dharge 
of the development office. 

He wiO be the first fuU-time ooordinatar of 
the Five Colleges, the first professional admin- 
istrator to hoM the position, and the first co- 
ardinator not previously affiliated with any of 
thie particSlpatinig institutions. 

Informal cooperation among the Connecticut 
Valley area educational institutions has existed 
for over a hundred years and in 1951 the first 
formal joint enterprise was establisihed as a 
corparation, the Hampshire Inter-Librzury Cen- 
ter. This deposiit library, (first located at Mount 
Holyoke College, is now at the University of 
Massachusetts in Amherst. 

In 1956 a joint faculty committee, with a 
grant from the Fund for the Advancement of 
Education, prepared a pamphlet on the possi- 
bilities of further fanmal cooperation and the 
following year the first coordinator was ap- 

pointed, Professor Sidney Packard of the Smith 
College faculty w<ho maintained an office on 
t!he Smith campus in Northampton and divided 
fiis time between teaching and the coordinator's 
responsibilities . 

Stuart M. Stoke, Mary Lyon Professor Emer- 
itus of P.sychology at Mount Holyoke College, 
succeeded Packard as coordinator in 1961 and 
for three years devoted his time to the joint 
activities of Amherst, Mount Holyoke and 
Smith Colleges and the University of Massachu- 
setts. Hampshire College, a coeducational, pri- 
vate lalberal arts college, was not chartered un- 
til 1965. 

Robert B. Whitney, professor of chemistry at 
Amherst College and acting dean from 1965- 
67, was apix>inted coordinator in 1964 and has 
served on a half-time basis until the present. 
Mr. Whitney will return to full-time teaching 
at Amherst. 

T^e position of Five College coordinator is 
exipected to develop as existing cooperative pro- 
grams are enlarged and new shared aiotivi/ties 
are added. 

Students at ciny of the institutions may take 
courses at the others, faculty are sometimes 
shared on joint appointments, and cooperative 
programs are conducted in astronomy, Asian-

WFCR Keeps Pace 
With Colleges' Growth 

Two major steps in the de- 
velopment of Five-College FM 
Radio Station WFCR as a full- 
service educational radio facility 
were announced today by Univer- 
sity Secretary Robert J. McCart- 

WFCR has become a licensed 
station in its own right with the 
transfer by the Federal Com- 
munications Commission of its 
broadcast license from Boston 
station WGBH to the University. 

The station has also moved in- 
to larger quarters at a new lo- 
cation on the UMass campus with 
expanded faciUtie5> that will per- 
mit more programming to origi- 
nate in Amherst and will enable 
the station to oegin stereo FM 
broadcasting this fall. 

WFCR has operated since its 
establishment in 1961 as a sub- 
sidiary under the broadcast li- 
cense of Boston educational sta- 
tion WGBH. For the first four 
years of its operation WFCR was 
little more than a relay station

Council Gets Okay 
On Open Houses If ... 

A motian passed unanimously by the Summer Student Exec- 
utive Council that open houses be allowed once a week during 
the suttnmer has received the conditional approval of the Dean 
of Students, Willliam F. Field. 

The qualifications of the dean must be formally accepted by 
the Council, he exi^ined In a letter to the SSEC president, be- 
fore the policy goes Into effect. 

The ire(gulatiianB provide that doors are to he kept "wide 
oipen" during the event. 

In addition, "Each student will 
be responsible to and for every 
other student in his corridor, in 
connection with all of them ob- 
serving open house regulations. 

"Should the 'honor system' 
break down, as demonstrated by 
violation of open house regula- 
tions," Uie qualifications con- 
tinue, "it then becomes the re- 
sponsibility of the residents to 
report these violations to the 
Head of Residence." 

The Council will review ita mo- 
tion when it meets again on 
Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the Coun- 
cil Chambers of the Student 

Orange Summer Arts Pro-

The Summer Arts Poetry Fes- 
tival, a three day round of films, 
poetry readings, and receptions 
ended Wednesday. 

Arnold Kenseth, member of the 
english faculty and pastor of the 
Amherst South Congregational 
Church, was introduced by Don- 
ald Junkins as key man in a dou- 
ble play combination of poet-pro- 
fessors including himself and 
Leon Barron. 

Mr. Kenseth explained how he 
almost unconsciously absorbs 
the impressions of which his 
poems are formed. From "Chan- 
ticleer," the line "It is all fair 
and lazy, so easy, so easy" de- 
scribes both the peace of the 
farm yard and the poet's easy 
shaping of his verse. 

'Marriage Song" introduced a 
unique note in the festival; other 
poets sang of love, of course, but 
none duplicated this poem's ser- 
enity. Kenseth sometimes used 
pastoral images and a dreamy 
tone to set up ironic contrasts, 
as in "B-52"s" in which Amherst 
at dawn is overflown by ma- 
chines of death. 

Contributing both a short film 
and a reading to Wednesday af- 
ternoon's program, Robert Bagg 
was introduced by Robert Fran- 
cis. "The Siege of the Summer 
House," shot in Amherst with 
Richard Wexler, is the acting out 
by local teenagers of a long nar- 
rative poem described as a mod- 
em "Rape of the Lock." 

Explaining that he found An- 
tibes haunted by Fitzgerald and 
Picasso, Bagg produced a haunt- 
ing trio of poems. 

"I Ask for Eternal Life" dem- 
onstrates the opposing claims of 
religion, the church, and poetry, 
but the connections are not ex- 

Similarly, "The Defense of the 
West" beginning as a dream-like 
game of writing soicide notes 

was transmuted into a protest 
against America's foreign policy. 
America says to Russia, "You 
must believe I will kill you be- 
fore your friendship can get off 
the ground." 

The "Elegy for Ronald Wynn." 
a beautifully controlled Platonic 
statement, associated verses 
carved on Greek monuments with 
the stones of a Greek theater 
that were made to resound with 
the young man's epitaph and a 
thirst for life with the rain storm 
that coincides with the news of 
his death. 

Robert Kelly's reading Wednes- 
day was an arresting change of 

Kelly's next book, to be pub- 
Ushed this fall, will be called 
Finding the Measure. He is pre- 
occupied with measure, the 
"rythmic presence" that inhabits 
the musical sense of a poem. 

As he read, he beat time with 
one hand, almost seeming to 
chant like a Celtic bard. Kelly 
believes that the way a poem is 
placed on the page should be an 
index to how it is intended to 

Conceding that his pooms, 
which often contain scholarly al- 
lusions or personal details, are 
difficult to absorb aurally, he in- 
sisted that we could not under- 
stand the poems perfectly until 
he had revealed their possibili- 
ties through reading aloud. 

As a self-proclaimed radical 
Kelly committed himself to a 
surprising number of formal ex- 
periments, as his "translation" 
of a Dante passage according to 
the sound of Italian, preserving 
the "nobility of the music of 
I>ante" while changing meaning 
or the rendering of "A Marriage 
Poem" into Basic English. 

Radio Station WFCR taped the 
poetry readings and has already 
broadcast the afternoon pro- 
grams. The readings by Howard 

in Amherst for WGBH broad 

In recent years its local pro- 
gramming has expanded until it 
now originates 50 per cent of the 
programs it broadcasts and con- 
tributes substantially to Eastern 
Educational Radio Network pro- 

WFCR is operated by the West- 
ern Massachusetts Broadcasting 
Council. Inc., a non-profit educa- 
tional radio group comprising 
Amherst, Hampshire, Mount Hol- 
yoke, and Smith Colleges and the 
University. The University as- 
sumes the major burden of the 
station's operating cost. 

The station operates a trans- 
mitter on Mount Lincoln in Pel- 
ham. Until this month the sta- 
tion was located at the UMass 
School of Education. It has been 
moved to the third floor of Hamp- 
shire House, where its facilities 
include three studios, two con- 
trol rooms, a newsroom, tape and 
record libraries and office space. 

WFCR now has a staff of seven 
and broadcasts every day from 
early morning to midnight with 
a signal that can be received in 
six states. The station has an ef- 
fective power radius of roughly 
65 mUes. 

Major program features are 
live music broadcasts — Metro- 
politan Opera, the Boston, Cleve- 
land and Chicago Symphony Or- 
chestras, the Boston Pops and all 
Tanglewood concerts. 

The station draws on the re- 
sources of the five colleges to 
provide a variety of educational 
and cultural programs. It also 
tapes and rebroadcasts lectures, 
symposiums, concerts and other 
events from ail of the member in 

WFCR director Albert Hulsen 
said that the station will begin 
broadcasts of formal college-level 
courses this fall, non-credit but 
to be given on a regular basis. 
Planned is an Asian studies sur- 
vey course by Dr. John M. Maki. 
vice dean of the College of Arts 
and Sciences, and a course on 
great speeches by Mary Jean 
Thomas. UMass assistant pro- 
fessor of speech. 

Beginning in October, conver- 
sational language classes In Ital- 
ian, German, French, Russian 
and Japanese will be ^ven start- 
ing at 6:30 a.m. 

*I feel we are ready now to 
make a major contribution in 
educational broadcasting by mak- 
ing available the resources of 
the five cooperating institutions 
and by bringing to those institu- 
tions additional resources from 
outside, " Hulsen said. 

Nemerov, Richard Wilbur, and 
Robert Kelly will be aired in the 
near future so there is yet an- 
other chance to enjoy an echo of 
the poetry festival.

Should Council Accept Honor System? 

The so-called "honor system" of the 
Dean's Open House pohcy conflicts with 
ttie evolving student judicial code which is 
expected to be in effect this fall. 

For this summer, a proposed regulation 
is: "Should the 'honor system' break down 
... it then becomes the responsibility of 
the residents to report these violations" of 
Open House regulations. 

But high administrative officials indicate 
that, come September, no student shall have 
to testify against himself or against any 
ottier student in any judicial hearing. 

Whether the SSEC favors the forthcom- 
ing judicial safeguards or not, the attach- 
ment of an apparent honor system should 
not be endorsed by the council without at 

least the expression of reservations. 

It doesn't matter that such a code of 
honor will probably be ignored by the vast 
majority. It doesn't matter that a coura- 
geous summer student could probably get 
away with refusing to testify should a case 

What matters is that the Council repre- 
sents the student body and that it has now 
been decreed that the student body may be 
expected to report violations. 

Whether or not the student body wants 
an honor system is a question the Council 
must consider when it moves to accept the 
qualifications attached to Open Houses.

Open Doors To Parietals 


Statesman Editor 

Now that the SSEC has succeeded in gaining Open Houses 
for the dormitories, mature reflection is in order by the student 
representatives and by the student body upon the "qualifications" 
made by the Dean of Students. 

Open doors during an Open House have become University-wide 
policy for the first time. When one considers the nature of an Open 
House, this policy is appropriate. An Open House is an activity of 
the entire dormitory. 

But the present achievement of Open Houses should not dis- 
courage those who favor the adoption of parietals. A system of 
private visitation for members of the of^osite sex has been long 
overdue for the University. 

An all dorm activity is one thing. Privacy within the frame- 
work of institutional living is another thing.

Give Us Recognition! 

To the Statesman Editor: 

I would like to register my 
complaint on the recent state- 
ment made by Dfean Field and 
the S.S.E.C. in reference to the 
"special" fall I.D. cards for 

I believe, as I am sure most of 
my fellow swingshifters do, that 
we deserve the same I.D. cards 
that all University of Massachu- 
setts students receive. This idea 
of receiving special I.D. cards 

classifying us as Swingshift stu- 
dents is a farce and so are our 
present summer I.D. cards. 

Why is the University so hesi- 
tant to recognize us as regular 
students? We are now full time 
members of this University and 
we should enjoy the benefits of- 
fered to its students. So. I say 
stop setting the "Swingshifters" 
apart from the other students 
and give us the recognition we

Amherst Peace Vigil 
Continues To Grow 

University of Massachusetts students are invited to join with 
townspeople, faculty, and high school students from Amherst in the 
Weekly VigU for Peace in Vietnam Sundays, from noon to 1:0U 
p.m., on the Amherst Town Common. 
The Amherst VlgU, reportedly each vigU being organized and 

one of the largest fai the country, 
lias continued since December 
1966 as a quiet but insistent re- 
minder that numbers of people 
are opposed to the war in Viet- 
nam. Attendance thi-oughout the 
year was sustained at a level of 
about three hundred people. 
During these summer months al- 
most one hundred people have 
continued to Join in the sUent 

In the Connecticut Valley, re- 
cently called The Valley of the 
Vigils, the vigils have fvmotioned 
in Northampton, at Smith Col- 
lege, and Mt. Holyoke. in Spring- 
field and recently in the town of 
South Hadley. For some months, 
University students continued to 
vigil outside the Student Union. 

The VigU has no local, state 
or national organization, with 

maintained tlirough the efforts 
«f its own local committee. The 
first Weekly VigU for Peace was 
l>egun on February 16, 1966 on 
the Santa Barbara campus of the 
University of California, and the 
movement has since spread 
throughout the United States 
where its continuing presence in- 
volves a varied group of people, 
including housewives, teenagers, 
students, professional and non- 
professional people. 

The Mt. Toby Monthly Meet- 
ing of Friends (Quakers), initi- 
ators of the Amherst Vigil, have 
announced that the vigil will 
continue throughout the sunmier. 
Students are welcome to join the 
group for all or part of the hoiu" 
every Sunday on the Town 

Later the Council approved a 
plan to hold another Casino Roy- 
ale on Saturday. August 19.

ing came when the student gov-

Rubin, wlio Is 28, is a self-an- 
nounced candidate for the Presi- 
dency of the United States. He 
intends to run this year by a 
"postcard plebiscite." Opposition 
to the candidate's speaking, when 
he was present in the Council 
Chambers, was negligible. (See 
the story <m page three.) 

However, after passing this 
act. introduced by Burt Freed- 
man (Commuters), the Council, 
on the motion of William An- 
derson (JFK Lower), reconsider- 
ed its vote. The second time a- 
round. after Rubin had left, de- 
bate was voiced against spend- 
ing funds on punch and coolcies, 
and an amended version passed. 

Freedman struck out the re- 
freshment provision, observing 
that there would be sufficient 
"food for thought" anyway. He 
also changed the wording of the 
bill so that the Council would 
not sponsor the speaking of Ru- 
bin but only sponsor "a room" 
for the speaking. 

Councilor Ken Kaplen (JFK 
Lower) said of the switch in 
phrases, "this gets us off the 
'hook' automatically." 

In the second debate. Counci- 
lors expressed apprehensions a- 
boort what Rubin might say un- 
der their sponsorship. Freedman 
offered the opinion that Rubin 
was going to be controversial. 
He went on to say he felt very 
strongly that free expression was 
essential in a free society.

Professor Questions State 
Loyalty Oath's Constitutionality 


StattMman Bditor 

At a February meeting of the Facility Senate. 
Professor Loren P. Beth of the government de- 
partment called attention to a Supreme Court 
decision and a then-pending Massachusetts case, 
which, in his view, rendered constltuttonally sus- 
pect the State's "teachers' loyalty oath." 

He asked, "What is the University's policy ooti- 
cemtng appointees who have or may in the future 
have oonscimtlous scruples against taking the 

kiyalty oaUi ?" 

The administration in the person of the Univer- 
sity's legal counsel. Sidney Myers, answered that 
It would have to await the outoome of the case in 
this State in which the Massachusetts Institute 
of Technotogy was being sued by a faculty member. 

But it was explained at the Senate that two 
loyalty oaths applied to University faculty, the 
"teachers' oath" of 1935 and the State empk>yees 
oath of 1949. University policy, the Senate was 
toJd, would still require the State employees oath 
regardless of the Pedlosky v. M.I.T. case outcome. 

•Rie "teadhers' oath" whkh was declared un- 
constitutkjnal in that case was worded: "I do 
solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support the 
Constitution of the United States axxl the Consti- 
tution of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts..." 

It went on to say, "I will faithfully discharge 
the duties of the position of. . .according to the 
best of my ability. On an interpiwtatiwi of this 
iMt sentence, the law was overturned. 

The opinion of Chief Justice Wilkins of the 

Supreme Judic'J Cotu^ stated: 

"The courts are exposed to the very real possi- 
bility of being asked to determine the degree of 
skill and faithfulness with which the plaintiff dis- 
charges the duties of ids private position. . uilto- 
gether too vague a standard to enforce Judicially." 

Despite the technical disposition of the "teach- 
ers' oath." Beth told the Statesman that he be- 
lieves chances are better than 50/50 that the Mas- 
sachusetts employees law is unconstitutional. 

In order to test the law, someone about to be 
employed by the State would have to refuse to 
take the oath said Beth. Two other possible ways 
to have the law taken off the books would include 
the University's asldng the Attorney General for 
an opdnion as to its constitutionality. 

While such an opinion if it found the law uncon- 
stitutional might also be tested, but it could be 
used just as a Oourt ruling or legislative revoking 
according to the professor. 

But he said, "The University obviously isn't 

Another method would be for those who had 
taken the State oath to write to their employer 
(the University) and the Attorney General and 
state that th^ were rescinding their oath. 

At least one person at the University, to Beth's 
knowledge has written a letter rescinding his 
oatii. So Car, he reported, the effort has been 

(Continued on page S) 

an oddball but you don't find 
many around." 

Before attacking their evening 
of motions, the Councilors were 
berated by their president, David 
Bartholomew, for poor attend- 
ance at committee meetings. Ad- 
visor Lew Gurwitz. in remarks 
of a similar tone, told the mem- 
bers, "You people talk a good 

If the second six weeks are 10 
times as productive as the first 
six, we might break even said 
Gurwitz. He advised the mem- 
l>ers to "shape up," asserting 
that "as it stands now the stu- 
dents aren't being represented." 

In other business. Treasurer 
Hugh Connerty reported a net 
loss of $147.58 on the Folk Pic- 

nic held on July 15. Total expen- 
ses were $297.58 with $150 tak- 
en in receipts. 

Approximately $597 was left 
for Council spending. 

In an experimental effort to 
provide "something to do" on 
the weekends, the SSEC will 
show two movies free on suc- 
cessive Friday nights starting on 
August 4 if arrangements can be 
made by that time. 

The Council also gave final 
approval to the Open House pol- 
icy at the meeting, endorsing the 
qualifications attached by Dean 
of Students William F. Field. 

Now the dormitories, at their 
discretion, may register as a so- 
cial event (at the RSO Office) 
one Open House a week. 

Umass Names Three To 
New Posts In Germany 

The University has named three faculty members to be in 
residence during the coming academic year at its Center for 
Atlantic Studies at the University of Freiburg in Germany. 

Dr. Peter Heller, Common- 
wealth Prof, of German, will di- 
rect the center for the '67-'68 
academic year and will teach 
(German and comparative litera- 
ture. Dr. Ferenc Vali, Prof, of 
government, will teach political 
science and will be in residence 
the first semester. Dr. Winfred 
Bernhard, Assoc. Prof, of his- 
tory, will teach history and be In 
residence for the second semester. 

The Center for Atlantic Stu- 
dies will open its second year 
Sept. 15 and will offer a ten- 
imonth study program for thirty 
selected grad and advanced un- 
dergrad students. Ctourses are 
taught by the UM resident stalT 
and by the Freiburg University 

According to Dr. Heller, the 
UM program differs from the 
usual junior year abroad by pro- 
viding a more advanced type of 
curriculum for highly qualified 
students and by emphasizing an 
interdisciplinary and interdepart- 
mental approach to significant 
areas of interest shared by Am- 
ericans and Europeans. 

These areas of interest include 
the common historical and liter- 
ary traditions of the two cMitin- 
ents and the political, social and 
economic problems faced by the 

western community of nations, 
according to Dr. Heller. 

Freiburg, one of the leading 
institutions of higher education 
in Germany, is in the Black For- 
est area, close to the borders of 
France and Switzerland. 

Vienna-born Dr. Heller served 
on the faculties of City College 
of New York and Columbia and 
Harvard Universities before Join- 
ing the UM staff hi 1964. He has 
l>een a Fulbright lecturer in Eur- 
ope, contributed to many schol-

Students Still 
For Promised 

It took the Treasurer's office 100 days 
to realize that being paid just once a 
month can create problems. It may take 
them another 100 days to do something 
about this. 

In April the Student Senate Services 
Committee recommended that students be 
paid every two weeks. The Treasurer's of- 
fice has finally decided that this is not an 
outrageous request. However, until all per- 
sonnel and records can be moved into Whit- 
more Hall, the new Administrative build- 
ing, the Treasurer's office maintains that 
a change in the payroll procedure is not 

In three weeks the Cashier's Office will 
be moved into Whitmore — this is the only 
department connected with payroll that is 
not already in Whitmore. One might then 
assume that students will be paid twice a 
week starting in three weeks, light? 


Are Waiting 
Bimonthly Pay 

Mr. Robert Kittle said that students will 
definitely be on a "bimonthly payroll by 
the fall semester." He later amended 
this by saying "they may not be paid this 
way until well into the fall semester." 

The reason for the delay? All the records 
and equipment of the Treasurer's office 
will not be fully installed in Whitmore for 
several weeks. It seems that before stu- 
dents can be paid in an almost sane man- 
ner, every pencil, pen and paper clip (from 
South College must be moved to Whitmore. 

It may be that moving from one building 
to another on campus is more difficult than 
it appears. It may be that the administra- 
tion is inefficient. 

Perhaps the best thing students can do 
for their own cause is to pick up all old 
paper clips and bring them to Whitmore. 
Every little bit helps.

U.S. Air Base Harassed 


SAIGON yp) — B52 squadrons 
churned up nearly four square 
miles of North Vietnamese ter- 
ritory just above the demilitar- 
ized zone with tons of bombs 
Wednesday in an effort to knock 
out the guns and wreck the bunk- 
ers of Hanoi's 341st Division. 

The high-flying, eight-jet Strat- 
ofortresses struck in waves two 
hours apart at enemy positions 
ranging from seven to nine miles 
north of Con Thien, one of the 
U.S. Marine outposts below the 
zone that has been hit hard and 
often by Communist barrages. 

The 341st is among three North 
Vietnamese divisions that intel- 
ligence officers consider are 
poised for an attempt to invade 
the border province of Quant Tri 
with the help of local Viet Cong 
and infiltrated Northern regulars. 

A few hours after the B52 
raids. Communist gunners else- 
where laid harassing fire on the 
U.S. Marine base at Don Ha, 10 
miles southeast of Con Thien. 

WB correspondent John Lengel 
reported from the field that 
about half a dozen shells were 
lobbed at Dong Ha. the biggest 
of four outposts delineating a 

sector that the Marines call 
Leatherneck Square. 

There was no immediate word 
about casualties or damage there. 

Nor was there specific informa- 
tion about what the Stratofortres- 
ses' saturation >bombing had ac- 
complished. The U.S. Command 
declined to disclose how many 
took part. 

The Stratofortresses have 
struck only a few times in the 
Communist North since their first 
raid on the Mu Gia pass, an out- 
let to the Ho Chi Minh trail 
through eastern Laos, in April, 

They have staged more than 
40 raids within the zone, though 
there was a long interval this 
year when they avoided the en- 
tire border region because of the 
threat of Soviet-made surface-to- 
air SAM missiles the North Viet- 
namese trucked in. 

U.S. fighter-bombers and artil- 
lery have worked over the SAM 
sites, however, and it evidently 
was felt the danger of missiles 
had been eliminated, at least for 
the time being in the area of the 
341st Division.

Candidate Rubin At Umass 
Hopes to talk with Students 

Arthur Rubin, 28, candidate for the presidency of the United 
States of America, arrived on the UMass campus Sunday night. 

After reading his letter to President Johnson, Gena C(M«a in- 
vited him to the campus to interview him for a feature story. Now 
staying in JFK, Mr. Rubin will be at UMass tor about a week. — ^Ed. 

The Letter to the President 

My Dear Sir, 

I am a candidate for the presi- 
dency of the United States of 
America for the year 1967 by na- 
tional plebiscite. I hold a bache- 
lor of science degree from Cal 
Tech. in engineering, and a doc- 
tor's degree in jurisprudence 
from the University of Chicago. 

I have taught high school to 
Harlem youths in New York City, 
served as income tax consultant 
for the poor of 63rd Street, Chi- 
cago, lived as a starving artist 
making avant garde animated 
films. I have worked for an elec- 
tronics company with an absurd- 
ly successful military and com- 
mercial history, designing elec- 
tronic and electromechanical de- 
vices for their computer industry. 
Later I worked as a legal advisor 
for one of the most profitable 
companies in the nation in which 
position I saw up close the real 
confusion of American business 

Finally, I worked as a cab dri- 
ver, driviiig people to work with 
smiles on their faces and 
even in their eyes, and then driv- 
ing them home from work, suf- 
fering the bitterness in their 
hearts after their session in the 
business world. 

Although the so-called free 
press and TV have repeatedly re- 
fused to give me any rccognitioB, 
I have made 500 hours of profes- 
sionally recorded talk, in whteh 
1 spell out my complete program. 
I have tried to chart coBcreiely 
the hope of mankind, reattiiBg 
that intelligent hope is Joy ob 

I believe the president of the 
United States should use all his 
powers for the common good. 
therefore, I believe the president, 
as commander in chief of not 
only that Roman nightmare, the 
military, but American television 
as well, is responsible for keep- 
ing truth and justice, if not id- 
ways in style, at least within 

I ask you for the power to 
speak on American television one 
hour per week. I want debate 
on the issue of whether we should 
finally take cognizance of the 
third line of Thomas Jefferson's 
own epitaph and remake the 
Louisiana purchase into some- 
thing every American owns 
equally, in the Jeffersonian sense 
of individual human independ- 
ence; as a national park if you 
will, but leaving the cities pretty 
much as they are. 


(Continued from Page 1) 
But Beth, who teaches constitu- 
tional law and civil liberties 
courses, went on to say that if 
25 or 30 persons were to do it at 
once, "probably the State would 
have to do something about it." 
Beth indicated that he had no 
present plans to test the law him- 
self. He said of his friends among 
the faculty, "there's a general 
feeling that they don't like to take 
the oath, but nobody seems likely 
to do something about it. Prob- 

ably, most of the faculty don't 
object." he added. 

"Oath Upon Entering tke Em- 
ploy of The University of Massa- 
chusetts in the Conmionweahk of 
Massachusetts:) I do solenmly 
swear (or affirm) ttiat I will up- 
hold and defend the Constitution 
of the United States of America 
and the Constitution ol the Com- 
monwealth of Massachusetts and 
that I will oppose the overthrow 
of the government of the United 
States of America or of this Com- 
monwealth by force, violence or 
by any illegal or unconstitutional

Pool Players Reck Room 

"Show me a good pool-player," 
claimed a critic of the game 
some time ago, "and I'll show 
you the victim of a misspent 
youth." The image of the pool- 
room as a smoke-filled hangout 
for shady characters and ne'er 
do-wells has faded since the 
above judgement was made, but 

Further I want debate on the 
issae whether we should have 
work a year-off a year for every- 
one. In the off year I know as 
fact a man can build for $30 a 
a heme more comfortable than 
anything he can get for $100 per 
month in the city, if only land 
were not a problem. The proof 
lies near Trinidad, Colorado, in 
a little goat pasture, away from 
the target zones, called cryptical- 
ly, "Drop City." 

If you would like to tack a 
name on my party, I call it in 
print "Y/our Party", pronounced 
Our Party or Your Party depend- 
ing on how you feel. As a stu- 
dent oi trademark law I have 
concluded that if True Cigarettes 
can grab off the word "true", 
then I have a right to "Y/Our

an intangible aura of improbity

of modern billiard rooms. 

The UMass BiUiard IUhhu is 
no exception, in spite of its bright 
atmosphere and collegiate cli-

the lower level of the Student

competitive recreation to l)oring

many of the same problems 
which have plagued less innoc-

The role of the pool-player has 
not changed much either. Mod- 
em billiard patrons rarely ex- 
pectorate on the noor or scream 
strings of obscenities after a 
missed shot, but tyros and ex- 
perts alike still disobey the house 
rules and manhandle expensive 
equipment. Cues and table cush- 
ions are regularly and systemati- 
cally ruined by pool players who 
neglect to rack their sticks and 
who refuse to use a table bridge 
when appropriate. 

Player complaints, usually 
voiced as excuses to explain 
away poor shooting, iiave always 
been common to poolrooms, but 
at UMass, the players have two 
honest criticisms — the playing 
surfaces are uneven, and the 
heat and humidity in the area 
are unbearable. Checking the lie 
of the green in 90° heat may be 
all right for golfers, but it places 
the pool-player right behind the

Fever Spreads West 

It reflected the fact that "pen- 
nant fever" among fans of the 
Sox, who had just won 10 straight 
games and were only a half game 
out of first place in the American 
League, had indeed penetrated 
Western Masachusetts. 

There were 
6000 persons at 
the airport to 
greet their newly 
rich heroes, and 
according to Wil- 
liam C. Crowley, 
the team's public 
relations direc- 
tor, a large part 
of the throng was 
from this area. 

"This is some- 
thing that has 
spread through - 
out New Eng- 
land." Crowley 
said. He added that the ticket 
lines outside Fenway Pirk Mon- 
day included hundreds from the 
Greater Springfield area. 

A group from Ludlow had even 
journeyed to Baltimore to sup- 
port the Red Sox during the re- 
cent road trip, he said. 

The local Peter Pan bus excur- 
sions to Fenway Park are enjoy- 
ing "unbelievable" success, ac- 
cording to Donald Myers, the 
line's traffic manager. He said, 
"It's the best response we've had 
in 20 years," which is roughly the 
last time the Red Sox won the 

More Charter Groups 

"Since about the first of July." 
he said, we've had more demands 
from charter groups than we've 
ever had before. He said the 
groups were evenly divided be- 
tween social groups, such as 
American Legion. Knights of Co- 
lumbus, Catholic Youth Organi- 
zation and churchmen's clubs, 
and business firms, including the 
American Bosch. Milton Bradley 
and Massachusetts Mutual. 

"Now we're getting quite a 
few corporations that have never 
sponsored trips before," he said. 

The reaction of fans of this 
area, who have been without a 
local professional baseball team 
since the Springfield Giants left 
two years ago, has been enthusi- 
astic and, for the most part, op^ 

,"I've been waiting for the Red 
Sox for about 10 years," said 
Richard Cournoyer, 19. of 914 
Front St.. Chicopee. "And I don't 
go for these Yankee fans who 
just become Red Sox fans when 
they're going good," he added.

He planned to see a game in 
Boston next week, he said, "but 
the way it's going I'U be lucky if 
I can get a seat." 

"I'm going tomorrow," said

Boston fan since 1938. He said 
his brother. Donald, a Maiden

Stamina Pays Off 
Another long- 
time Sox follower 
was Thomas Gor-

said, "They've

Richard Hogan, 
35, of 75 Clydes- 
dale Ln. was asked whether he 
was a Red Sox fan and replied, 
"Now I am. They're winning. Ac- 
tually I'm just following them a 
little more now." 

He said he followed the team 
closely until Ted Williams left 
and now has regained the old 

"It's about time," said Herbert 
Freedman, 37. of 203 Primrose 
Dr., Longmeadow, "I've been a 
fan 15 or 20 years," he said, "and 
I've stuck with them even in the 
lean years." 

Donald Hess, 20, of 45 Earle 
St. phrased his allegiance to the 
Red Sox simply: "They're tre- 
mendous. And it's due mainly to 
(Dick) Williams," Boston's first- 
year manager. "They're not 
going to fold," he predicted. 

Another pennant prediction was 
voiced by Robert Ryan, 35, of 30 
Spruceland St. "I think you've 
got to give credit to the man- 
ager." he added; "he's made all 
the difference. He's been strict 
and he's kept them loose now, 
when it's really important."

Perhaps the most enthusiastic 
fan interviewed was .Alfred G. 
Haggerty. 48. of 67 Sherman

since 1932. "and that was also 
the time when they were always 
in the cellar." 

He said, "The best thing that's 
happened since Ted Williams is 
Dick Williams." 

Of course, the spirit has per- 
meated a less boisterous class of 
fans— the ladies. "I think it's 
wonderful, wonderful," exclaimed 
Mrs. John Padykula, 65, of 148

baseball was Mrs. Barbara Fig-

said, "with Mike Andrews at sec-

credit, and Jerry Adair, who's

Vegas Nite Brings Casino To Umass 

By OART BOI^raABIESt, 'Stotesman' Reporter 

The Student Union Ballroom will be turned 
into a gambling casino as a result of legislation 
passed by the Summer Student Ilxecutive Council 
at its last regularly scheduled meeting. 

At its meeting the SSEC voted to sponsor Las 
Vegas Nite as its major social event of the sum- 
mler. The event is tentatively scheduled for 
August 19. 

"Las Vegas Nite," aooording to SSEC Advisw 
Liow Gurwttz, ♦'will be a dlvcnrsifled evening of en- 
tertainment in which drinking (soft) and dancing 
will be combined with gambling and an auction 
for expensive prizes." 

On Las Vegas Nite the Student Union Ball- 
room will become "The Casino Royale". The 
gambling casino will be modeled after an actual 
casino in Las Vegas. Among the games of chance 
which students will be given a chance to win at 
are craps, roulette, chuck-a-luck, the wheel of 
fortune, poker and blackjack. The games will be 

run by various administrative officials and SSEC 

The admission ticket which the student pays 
for in real cash wiD entitle him to a specified 
amount of playing money. The object of the eve- 
ning will be for students to build up their winnings 
for the auction which will follow the closing of 
the gaones. Students who lose their cash early in 
the evening will have the opportunity to buy ad- 
ditional playing money from the cashiers office 
of the casino. 

During the evwilng students wSU have the op- 
portunity to buy drinks and to relax at a side- 
walk cafe. A band will also be on hand through- 
out the event for those who v-ant to combine 
their gambling with dancing. 

At the end of the evening the gambling tables 
will be closed and an auction will be held for 
various prizes donated by A» merchants. 
Students will bid for the prizr^s in the playing mo- 
ney which they have accumulated during the 

The prizes will be many and varied. Last year 
the first prize was a $50.00 AM-FM radio. Other 
prizes included free meals at various eating places 
on and off campus and different services pro- 
vided by local merchants. This year the SSEC is 
making a determined effort to enlist the support 
of the entire Amherst community so that a wide 
variety of prizes will be available. 

With regard to the event, Paul Oibbs, SSEC 
Vice-ChaimHui for Las Vegas Nite, stated: "The 
program which we are planning promises to be an 
evening of fun designed to suit the tastes of every 
student on campus. I would advise students to 
plan ahead and to make sure that this event is 
placed on their social calendars. It should be the 
biggest event of the summer." 

He added that the SSEC is in need of inter- 
ested students to work on the various committees 
planning the event. Students can sign up in the 
RSO Office of the Student Union or with their 
representative on the SSEC.

Bessie Leetures on Books, 
Rounds Out July Arts Progrom 


SlwtaHBMi BdUor 

That books as a media are far from dead was the central argu- 
ment to the lecture. Impact of Modem Techmrfogy on Books. 

There are more book customers today than ever before publisher 
Simon Michael Bessie told a small Student Union audience last 
night. He explained that "book publishing. . .has become very larg^y 
educational publishing." 

Non-educational books, however, account for only 7 percent of 
all the works sold, he pointed out. But while conceding that tech- 
nology is replacing some of the educational uses of books — by audio 
visual materials, by computer memories — Bessie offered the view 
that there will always be the ibook as literature. 

The work where language style is important will be in book 
form, he said. A book, Bessie defined, is written by one person, 
preserved in permanent form, and individually consumed. 

"What form of reading can be handier than the book?" he asked. 

In a similar vein, he said of the small publisher, "I wonder if 
there won't always be a need for the little fellow." His operation is 
like a machine shop or laboratory— "He is an experimenter," Bessie 

The new technology of publishing accounts fior the paperback 
editions. But what is happening in books cannot be seen solely from 
the technological view. There is Uncle Saan, the censor, and Wall 
Street (23 publishing houses are on the stock exchange) to contend 
with, he said. 

Calling the paperbound edition still one of the most exciting 
things in books after 20 years, Bessie observed, "The censorship 
urge is almost certainly excited anew by the new techn<rfogy" 

Another government influence, the copyright, is Involved in the 
current education aspect of the book industry, said Bessie. He 
called attention to the copyright proposals before Congress at the 
present time and the oooicem of publishers and writers for "fair use." 

The v«ry real possiblUty of educational "bootlegging" of iwlnted 
matter by oopyli^ machines calls Into question. In Us opinion, 
"What material will enjoy the copyright and for how long?" 

It is the position of the writers and publishers, he explained, 
that everything else used for education (such as chairs, plumbing, 
and pencils) is paid for^^w wtiy not books. 

In answer to questions, Bessie touched upon a number of other 
subjects including reviewing of books. No one who writes or pub- 
lishes, he said, thinks reviewing is adequate. The level is k)wer 
than it need be. he added. 

Since Rubin feels that regular 
politics is a money game involv- 
ing the purchase of petitions and 
the paying off of newspapers, he 
has created his own party, Y/ 
Our Party. 

On the ticket of this party, he 
will run for president by nation- 
al plebiscite. When the time is 
ripe, Rubin wants all of his sup- 
porters to send certified post- 
cards to the Supreme Court de- 
manding that Rubin be der^lared 
president of the United States. 

According to the candidate, 
the legality of his method is 
based on the Baker verses Carr 
decision in the Supreme Court. 

This case concerned dispropor- 
tionate voting. "The Supreme 
CJourt's decision actually de- 
clared that whenever things be- 
come very bad, they must be 
changed immediately," Rubin 

'The Supreme Oourt said that 
the government wasn't repres- 
enting the people." "It said that 
it would give a chance to the 
igovemment to correct itself ac- 
cording to notions of schoolboy 
truth and justice." 

"Also, the Court declared that 
if the government didn't correct 
itself within a reasonable time 
that this noble court of last hope 
might just have to do the job it- 

If necessary, Rubin will file a 
suit to the Supreme Court 
charging President Johnson with 
unfairness in not answering his 

"This was a serious abuse of 
his power", Rubin said. "He has 
gone beyond the bounds of fair 
play in the tension between 
honesty and politics." 

Ultimately, Rubin's authority 
ifor holding a national plebiscite 
rests in the Declaration of In- 
dependence and in the Preamble 
to the Constitution. 

Rubin dtes the 9th amend- 
ment, which he calls "the Joker 
suit to the Supreme Court 
In the pace" and "the forgotten 
amendment". "The 9th amend- 
ment declares that a man has 
more rights than Just the ones 
the law gives to him," Rubin ex- 

He translates the amendment 
in this way: "These other rights 
are to be read as in no sense 
suggesting that there are not a 
world of rights just as real and 
just as worthy of protection by 
whatever forms the government 
shall take." 

Rubin has written a new Bill 
of Rights. In n rider attached to 
the Bill, he takes care of his 
technical difficulties in running 
for the presidency, i.e., his age 
of 28. 

To publicize his campaign, Ru- 
bin will pyramid his tapes on 
which he has recorded his plat- 
form. A group will tape his re- 
cordings on their own machines 
and they, in turn, will let other 
p>eople record their tapes. 

Another publicity method will 
be his trial in Chicago next 
month. He will appear as the 
defendant in a criminal case. He 
is charged with injuring a police- 

He has many witnesses who 
saw the incident involved and 
will testify that it was the 
policeman who assaulted Rubin 
and not visa versa. 

Because he has been charged 
falsely, Rubin will sue the city 
of Chicago FOR the city of Chi- 

Explaining the reason for his 
suit, Rubin said, "As a punish- 
ment for the city for trying to 
destroy me, I have a right to 
take Chicago into protective cus- 

If his campaign fails, Rubin 
has several alternatives frMn 
which to choose. "I'll declare 
myself the people's president. All 
I need is the ear of the people", 
he said. 

If he doesn't become president, 
he may go to a plantation his 
father owns in Paraguay. "Of 
course they have a dictator over 
there, but we'll Just throw him 
over", he said shrugging his 

If everything goes wrong for 
him, Rubin's last altematve is 
to go off with all the people, 
who, according to his horoscope, 
were bom in the good months.

Day of Prayer - - Epilogue 

Yesterday Americans across the nation 
prayed for peace in the cities and an end 
to racial rioting. Tliey also prayed for many 
other things: fathers prayed for a good 
day on the golf course, mothers prayed for 
a day away from the kitchen, and children 
prayed for their parents to take them to 
the beach. Red Sox fans prayed for Dar- 
rell Brandon and the Statesman Editors 
prayed for a lai^e turnout at their staff 
meeting today. 

Americans are a people of prayer. The 
Pilgrims made a covenant with God and 
their descendants — if they sometimes won- 
der about the terms of the covenant — are 
still by and large satisfied with it. 

The essence of prayer is faith — a faith 
that the universe is ordered rather than 
chaotic and therefore subject to rational 
influences. We believe that reason and pur- 
pose rules our lives rather than fate. 
Whether this belief is true or false no one 
can say with certainty. But Americans be- 
lieve that it is true and so they pray. 

There is an old Biblical adage which says 
that God helps those who help themselves. 
And this also is believed to be true by 
Americans : father believes that it is with- 
in his power to break par, mother believes 

that she can make father take her out for 
the evening meal, and children believe that 
they can whine enough to get themselves to 
the beach. Red Sox fans obviously believe 
that Darrell Brandon can control the Twins 
if he has a good day for why else would 
thirty-five thousand fans jaixi themselves 
into a ninety degree oven to cheer them- 
selves into hysteria. 

But the roots of prejudice — black and 
white — are complex and deep, and under- 
standing the mind of the ghetto is difficult. 
We wonder if any human being really un- 
derstands such problems and/or their solu- 
tions. And we also wonder if any human 
being should be expected to understand. 
Because we believe this, we go to church on 
Sunday and turn the problem over to God 
for His personal attention; then we return 
home to deal with more mundane problems 
which we believe do not demand such at- 
tention. All this seems somehow fitting to 
us, but it must be very confusing for the 
Deity who rules the universe. 

Thus it happens that Monday comes and 
we forget about racial problems. We forget 
until another city explodes in violence.

ested students to work on the following committees for Las

UMass Morgans Forgotten 

To the Editor: 

Last weekend the Eastern National Morgan Horse Show was 
held in Northampton. I was very disappointed to discover that the 
University of Massachusetts was not represented by even a single 
horse at the show. 

The history of the University In breeding: and training Morgans 
Is a long one. But not since 1962 has the University raptured a 
championship. "Bay State Flintloclt"— our 1962 champion— partici- 
pated last year but tooit no prize. And this year, wlitle the University 
of Vermont liad two entries and the University of Connecticut liad 
six, UMass had none at ail. 

In the past year several of our best horses were sold. The sires 
and dams of a number of entries this year were UMass horses. But 
these horses are now gone — perhaps for good. 

It appears that since the departure of Mr. Richard Nelson — 
one of the best Morgan trainers in the country — from our staff our 
prize horses have been badly neglected (or so I was told by a Mor- 
gan breeder who bought one of our horses earlier this year). I ap- 
peal to those who take any interest in horses and to those who take 
pride in our University to put a halt to this sad trend of events.

Vietnam Bull Session to be Held 

Are you confused about the war in Vietnam ? Has the adminis- 
tration satisfactorily explained to you why it is necessary to suffer 
10,000 casualties and to spend billions per year — in a war which 
may last 20 years ? The war in Vietnam is the most important 
problem our country faces. Do you know the complexities of this 
war — have you gone beyond Huntley-Brinkley ? 

Members of the Faculty Committee on Peace & War will discuss 
the war with students on an informal basis Tuesday, August 1 at 
7:30 p.m. in the 19th floor lounge of JFK. No lectures will be given; 
instead, we want a free exchange of ideais.

Council Correspondent Speaks Out 

SSEC Fails To Live Up 
To Their Responsibility 

MONDAY, JPl^Y 81, 1967 



The Summer Student Execu- 
tive must be responsible to the 
summer student body. Motions 
passed by the council and favor- 
ably reviewed by the University 
affect the entire summer stu- 
dent body. One suph motion was 
that of all allowing open houses 
a week. The SSEC has another 
vitally important function. The 
spending of its $800 budget in a 
manner that is most beneficial 
to the summer student body. 

But just how resf>onsible is 
the SSEC to the summer stu- 
dent body? The only things of 
any merit that the council has 
done so far have been to select 
a judiciary and to pass the mo- 
tion concerning open houses. 
The council's first major event 
of the summer, the Folk Picnic, 
which was backed by more than 
$400, was a large failure, which 
will limit the council's activities 
for the remainder of the sum- 

A fair segment of the stu- 
dents did not even know what 
the Folk Picnic was. 

There has been a definite lack 


(July 31 


August 6) 








10:30- 6:30 

of communication between the 
SSEC and the student body. 
Without adequate communica- 
tion of ideas, the SSEC cannot 
possibly be responsible to the 
body it represents. But not only 
has the council been irresponsi- 
ble, a tremendous lack of inter- 
est among council members was 
observed on July 18, when so 
few members were present so as 
to lack even the quorum neces- 
sary to run the meeting. It is 
your job to pressure your rep- 
resentatives. Tell them what 
you want done. Remember, you 
have the right to recall your 
representatives, replacing them 
with people you feel are more 

Besides sponsoring a couple of 
minor activities, the council has 
committed itself to running one 
major event this summer; the 
Las Vegas Nite. Proper commu- 
nication between the SSEC and 
the student body will be neces- 
sary to make these events suc- 
cessful. I see the statesman as 
one means of communication 
that has not been adequately 
used in this area. I am looking 
forward to seeing articles in the 
Statesman from some responsi- 
ble SSEC members on the Las 
Vegas Nite and other campus

Detroit Mayor Predicts 
Own Political Doom 


"The die is fairly well cast," 
Mayor Jerome P. Cavanaugh 
said Friday. 

"Let's face it," he said. "There 
are a lot of people who — even if 
we rebuilt this into a model city 
in the next six months — would 
have nothing to do with me." 

The explosion of violence was 
the latest in a series of tripham- 
mer political blows to the 39-year- 
old mayor, once among the 
brightest stars on the Democrat- 
ic party horizon. 

He lost in the Senate Demo- 
cratic primary to former six-term 
Gov. G. Mennen Williams, who 
lost in the election to Sen. Robert 
Griffin, the Republican who cam- 
paigned with Gov. George Rom- 

The city's rising crime rate led 
to criticism of Cavanaugh and a 
campaign was launched to recall 
him from office. 

Cavanaugh's political standing 
suffered again in June when 1,000 
patrolmen failed to report for du 
ty to back up demands for pay 
raises the mayor says the city 
can't afford. Police problems 
now are under negotiation. 

Only last week came a develop- 
ment that has meant political ob- 
livion for many another public 
figure — marriage trouble. 

His wife, Mary Helen, a for- 
mer University of Detroit beauty 
queen, filed suit for separate 
maintenance and demanded cus- 
tody of the couple's eight chil- 
dren, ages 2 to 13. The Cava 

naghs are Roman Catholics. 

"Politically, nothing could be 
worse," Cavanagh said then. 

Five days later, the rioting be- 
gan and. while it eventually 
swelled into racially integrated 
lawlessness, it started as a Ne- 
gro rebellion against what Ne- 
groes believed to be police brutal- 
ity in a city that bragged about 
its police public relations and ra- 
cial harmony.

In the dirty dream we're liv- 
tog to now, why would an totel- 
ligent, well-edlucated, niclh man 
otf 28 devote all otf his time to 
the absoflute'ly futile igoal otf 
running for ipresident? 

Where did he get ids hope? 
How can he go through wlmt 
he calls "our meat-grinder soc- 
iety" and still come out whole? 
Or is he whole? Has he been 
ground iq> more than anyone 
else or less? 

Is he a Hodden CauldBteld or 
Dostoevsky's Idiot, a Prtooe 
Myshkm who talks dlirty? Is he, 
as an almost hypnotized report- 
er ifirom "The Springfield 
Union" asked him, a prophet? 

Arthur was bom the same

twok) was and he does believe 
tliat he's a Superman. "Always

Since he never does or says 
anythtog in the established 
order, he calls himself Man- 
super in the disguise of Kent 

He was bom on March 10, 

flour days before Eiinsteto's 
birthday. According to the hor- 
oscope, that makes him a Pis- 
ces. In a paper he wrote en- 
titled "A Sdentilfatc View otf the 
Horoscope," Arthur speaks of 
the Pteces, to a way which can 
be appUed to him. 

"A oorreiberaite iitem is the 
contemiporary Italian phrase in 
common use, '^Marzo-Pazao," 
literally March-orazy, analogous 
to our archaic Aipniil Fool, but 
more generally applied to the 
more more more more more 
eccentric Idiosyncratic behavior 
Of the March bom." 

He is gentle and almost boy- 
ish. He is oompletely open and 
says what he thinks, which is 
enough in Itself to Justify label- 
ling him "crazy." He laughs a 
lot and a grin spreads across 
his face and the comers of ills 
eyes wrtokle and he enjoys liv- 
ing tremendously and is tre- 
mendously alive. 

And he is a dreamer. 

In some otf his "Presddential 
Papers" which he drew \xp sev- 
eral years ago, his plan for the 
covmtry was "Ecstasy for Ev- 
eryone." He wants life to be 
good and peoptte to he happy. 

If he were president, he 
would have standardized cars 
Which would be avaiiable to 
everyone and atavost trouhle- 
fpee. As an engineer, he knows 
that this is possible at our pres- 
ent stage of technology. 

Instead of schools, he would 
use a directory to educate 
Americans. Wlienever anyone 
had a question, he would look 
up the subject to the directory, 

Med School Dean Seeks Faculty 


'Statesman' Shorter 

In 1962 the Massachusetts Leg- 
islature passed an act asking the 
University of Massachusetts to 
found a medical school. In 1965, 
Worcester was chosen as the lo- 
cation of the new school and its 

In 1970 a small class of about 
25 is expected. The enrollment of 
the school when completed will 
be about 400. 

The hospital should be complet- 
ed in 1972. It will have 400 beds 
and will be one of the most mod- 
ern in New England. It wiU draw 
its patients from all over the 

The hospital will have a com- 
puter history on every patient. 
There will be closed circuit televi- 
sion used in computer operations 
for teaching. Also a large amount 
of research will be done there. 

The dean of the medical school. 
Dr. Lamar Soutter, received his 
M.D. from the Harvard Medical 
School in 1935. He has had exten- 
sive experiences both in private 
practice and in medical educa- 

Soutter at one thne was Dean 
of the Boston University School 
of Medicine. He has had more 
than 60 articles published in med- 
ical Journals in all areas of med- 
icine, with special emphasis on 
medical education and surgery. 

Since he was appointed 
as dean, Dr. Soutter has been 
seeking qualified doctors and ad- 
ministrators for the school and 

A factor that makes the hiring 
of the faculty difficult is the ina- 
bility of U. Mass. to pay the sal- 
aries some of the doctors ask for 
teaching. However, a bill is now 

Upward Bound Students 
Spend Summer on UM Campus 

before the legislature that would 
exempt some of the faculty from 
the State Salary Sealing Law. 
This will enable Dr. Soutter to 
get the best faculty possible for 
the medical school. 

The money necessary for the 
building of the school and hospi- 
tal is coming from state and fed- 
eral funds. Federal officials 
have approved the University's 
application for federal funds but 
at this time have not said how 
much will be allocated to the 

They wish to hold further con- 
sultations with hospital officials, 
medical societies and public offi- 
cials of Worcester to determine 
that city's interest in having the 
Medical School located there. 

Dr. Soutter said that although 
federal funds would be held up 
because of this, it would not af- 
fect the school's plans, since fed- 
eral funds would not be needed 
until July 1968. 

The medical school received its 
accreditation when it was voted

By JIM OBENSTEIN, 'Statesman' B^wrter 

The "Upward Bound" program, which intro- 
duces students from western Massachusetts to 
college life, has come to UMass this summner. 

The program ftoanced by the Office of Eco- 
nomic Opportunity (OEO), has programs on cam- 
puses all over the United States. The program, 
in its second year, is in a still somewhat ^xpen- 
mental stage. It is presently limited to 100 

Tiie students, aU high school aged, have had 
problems In school due to environmental or self- 
disciplinary problems. Most did not plan to go to 
ooUege. Yet, because of their superior Intelligence, 
they were chosen with the hope that with this 
additional stinmlus tliey would be motivated to- 
ward the goal ot college. 

The students are recommended by their guio- 
anoe counselors. If accepted, they can participate 
in the program through their senfor V^^r eacn 
summer. The program then aids them in grttmg 
acceptance to coUege through guidance and r^ 
conmiendations. OccasionaUy, students obtam 
schodarships. . , 

•nie studento' avwage class day constats or 
cbMMs in the mondnc, cultural activities in tae 

afternoon and extrsrcurrlcular activities late in 
the day. Their status on campus Is the same as 
that of a normal university student. The classes 
they take are either at the college or college- 
preparatory level. Extra-curricular activities of- 
fered Include a wide choice of areas. Their 
future plans Include a trip to Expo '67. 

There are 12 counselors aged, 19 to 23, aid- 
ing the students. They act as advisors or tutors. 
They do not deal with disciplinary matters. 

The students themselves choose a student 
council. Any dlsclpUnary problem Is dealt with by 
the council. It also forms rules, sets curfews, and 
regulates social and recreational functions. The 
council he4>s to establtoh an atmosphere Krf free- 
dom among the students. 

When asked if Upward Bound was successful, 
program director Dennis Elgrin told the Stotes- 
onan, "Definitely. The students who participated 
in last year's program generally showed improve- 
ment In their academic work during the school 
year." Although he would like to see the program 
expanded, OEO would only designate funds for 
100 students. 

lUs summer's program ends August 18. 

call the appn^riate nuntiber 
and ask for some help in find- 
ing out the answer for tUmseif. 
At the end of the year, the 
telephone professors would fill 
out a form and state how much 
they think they sliould pay. 

He wouHd legalize marijtiana 
and have It soUd in packages 
of three, as a last resort in dis- 
couraging its misuse. Each per- 
son is to smoke one clgairette 
on the way to work to think 
they think they should be paid. 

Explaining further he says, 
"Once at work, he's not to take 
another one no matter what 
goes wrong. If aomething there 
makes him angry, he's to 
scream albout it and demand 
justice. On the way home, he 
can smoke again and evaluate 
the day." 

He allows for the last ciga- 
rette to be smoked whenever 
the individual wishes. «. 

Even though his "pot plan" 
is not in effect now, Arthur 
still manages to live his own

You sit next to Arthur and 
look at hHs face. It changes very 
rapidly. It's like the way car- 
toons are made. Many pictures 
with very slight variations and 
if the drawings are flipped 
through quickly, it looks like 
the object is mx)ving. That's 
what's happening to his face. 

The micsic vibrates into an

He brings up a clarinet and a 
concertina from his car so that 
you can dream your own dreams 
and not just listen to the dreams 
of other people on records. 

After a while, Arthur ex- 
plains to you the games people 
are playing at this party. — 

"It's a tearing down game," 
he says. "You see it in orders 
like Turn the light off, dum-

He kecjps telling you to watch 
everything very carefully, watch 
them try to destroy each other, 
watch them play Russian Rxni-

One of the boys plays a song

is brilliant. But when he finish-

'iiot bad ethdc." His own ethic 

is a positively good one. He 

describes it as "doing what

Redmen Shine On Cape Cod 


Cape Cod, known for its sandy 
beaches and gentle breezes, still 
lures vacationers by the thous- 
ands every week of the summer. 
Some come to swim or sail, 
others to fish, and still others 
are just content to lojif around 
and enjoy the tranquillity of the 

Then there's those who come 
to play baseball-a sport not nec- 
essarily identified with seaside 

University of 
setts and Spring- 
field College are 
big at ttie beach 
this summer. 
The Redmen 
have 10 players 
spread around 
the loop. 

The Harwich 
team, a contend- 
er in the Lower 
Division, is 
"coached by Tony 
Williams, former 
hot corner 
guardian at 
U M a s s. W i 1 - 
liams, a second 
year pilot, has 
pitchers John 
Canty and Dave 
Katz and short- 
st»p Joe DiSar- 
cina from this 
year's NCAA 

tourney-team at 
UM. He also has 
Dick Pepin, a 
UMass transfer 
outfielder, and Steve Stanford, 
who played with the frosh team 
at Amiherst last spring. 

UMass also has some talent 
on three other teams. Frosh 
first baseman Bob Hansen was 
hitting around .325. Wareham 
is getting steady sticking from 
cleanup hitter Ted Mareno, who 
completed his varsity career 
with the Redmen last June. 

Other UMass boys at Ware- 
ham are infielder John Mitsakos 
and pitcher Norm Elliott. Mit- 
sakos has been playing short- 
stop and Elliott has been busy in 
the bullpen. 

Steve Rogers, who will be a 
sophomore at UMass this fall, 
pitches and plays first base for 
the Yarmouth Team. Rogers, a 
lefty fllnger, had two early shut- 
outs and was hitting over .300. 
Drafted by the Baltimore 
Orioles out of 
high school, Ro- 
gers actually 
came to UMaSs 
on a football 
scholarship. He 
broke his leg 
• last year, but is 
slated to play 
safety for Vic 
Fusia's gridmen 
this fall. 

— Canty of 
UMass was only 
1-2 the other 
week, but he 
was leading the 
league in strike- 
outs . . . His win 
was a two-hit 
shutout in which 
he also contri- 
buted a homer 
and a double . . . 
DiSarcina, the 
leading hitter 
for the Redmen 
last spring, was 
off to a slow 
start at the 
plate . . . One of the league 
statisticians is Dick Bresciani, 
assistant sports information di- 
rector at UMass . . . Redmen 
varsity coach Dick Bergquist 
spent several days watching his 
boys in action.

Council Hears Reports 

Committee reports, discussion of what movie to 
show, and initial action on revisions to the Can- 
stitution were the order of business at last night's 
Summer Student Executive Council meeting. 

The Council now consists of tUbout 32 members 
due to the fact that three vacancies in Calvin 
Coolidge Upper and Lower went unfilled in Tues- 
day's election. "I think it's Idund of sad," Elections 
Chairman Jeff Tinun told the metnbers. 

It takes iffive votes to be iwri(tten-4n, he said and 
pointed out that no one took out nomination 

A present membei of the Council, Gale Palmer, 
received the highest number of votes in the el- 
ection—three. None of the ballots cast counted 
as it turned out. 

Councilor Jerry LeBeau (JFK Middle) gave a 
report on the lighting situation at the "f" lot. 
He indicated that with the expected hiring of four 
new police officers, there may be one covering 
the parking lot more closely. At next week's meet- 
ing, William A. Laml)ert, a planning engineer staflf 
associate for the University, w4H speak to the 
Council at 7:30, he announced. 

It was also reported that there are two vacan- 
cies on the Summer Women's Judiciary. 

In the area of jMPOviding social affairs, the Coun- 

cil heard reports from Las Vegas Nite chairmen 
and then moved into an unofficial movie commit- 
tee of the whole. Because he had less than a week 
to order tomorrow's movie, Councilor Ken Kap- 
len had to spend $57.50 for the Guns of Navaronne. 

To select the next two movies, Kaplan wanted 
the Ck)uncH to select the title and price range as 
well as appropriate the necessary funds. 

One Qjuncil made the observation that we must 
remember some of these movies appeal to mem- 
bers of one sex only. 

After a mock-serious debate, the Council ap- 
propriated another flOO. Although the movies, 
Alfie and The Sandpipers received the most fa- 
vor, Kaplen noay have to select a movie in black 
and white for the outdoor showing. 

The Council gave approval to a Constitutional 
amendment which would legalize the advisors ac- 
tion in apportionment of Council seats among the 
summer students at the start of the summer. 
This year the advisor reapportioned on his own 

"Let the advisor decide," was how Frank (]Jori 
thought the matter ^vould be settled. 

Councilor Burt Freedman, however, added an 
amendment that there be a minimum of 30 posi- 
tions and a maxirmini of 50 on the body. 

been reported to him. 

He described open stacks as 
an effort to tflacnWtate the "serv- 
ice" aspect of the library and 
also an "aoactemnc" opportunity 
fior the individual student. 

Probably the most surprising 
change to greet returning stu- 
dents will be the "exit control 
system." Under this ' plan, as 
Clay explained it, inspection 
will be made of what the stu- 
dent takes frmn the library. 
There will also be a reduction 
in the number of outside ent- 
rances and exits. 

An exit controll system is in 
operaftion at a niumtoer of major 
libraries, onoluding Harvarti's 
Widener Libroiry. Its primary 
purpose, it was explained, is to 
prevent the unauthorized "bor- 
rowing of books. 

In the past the open-slhelved 
reference books especially have 
suHfened oonsideraible losses ac- 
cordimg to a libivury spokesman. 
One long-awaKed change is 
expected for the public cata- 
logue sometime during the fall, 
the director said. This will be 
the implementation of "resale 
cover slips." Each book "on re- 
serve," will be thus identifled 

in the regular catalogue under 
its author, or main, entry. 

Another d*flferenoe at Goodeil 
will be a change in the location 
of the Smoking Room accort- 
ing to Clay. 

The most impartant aspect of 
change in the Universiity sys- 
tem is connected with the pro- 
posed new ilrbrary. Preliminary 
architectural designs for the 
New Library have been made 
and approveii by both the Uni- 
versity and the state Bureau 
of Building Construction, re- 
ported the libraries director. 

Funds for the building are a 
part of the governor's capital 
outlay budget now pending be- 
fore the Legislature. Clay cited 
the spring of 1970 as the target 
completion date. 

Although he didn't speculate 
about the fate of the governor's 
proposed budget. Clay called 
the current financial situatkm 
limiting. "As things stand," he 
said "v/e are just not in a posi- 
tion to take on any new under-

Vista Representatives 
Speaks Here Today 

Field Representatives from VTSTA will be on the University of 
Massachusetts campus in the Student Union, on Thursday, August 
3rd to help people apply to VISTA and to answer questions about 
the program. Their Academy Winning Documentary, "A Year To- 
wards Tomorrow" narrated by Paul Newman will be shown cor- 
tinuously in the Plymouth Room of the Student Unk>n. 

Volunteers In Service To America is a long name for a groop 
with a direct purpose: to make tangible contributions to the 40 mil- 
lion impoverished people in the United States. 

VISTA Volunteers are willing to serve in any of the United 
States and Territories where invited by a local agency to help fight 
poverty while living in the community they serve. They live in ur- 
ban and rural areas, in migrant camps, on Indian reservations, in 
Job Corps trainii^ centers, and woric in the field of community and 
menrtal health. 

The period of service is one year plus six weeks of training. The 
minimum age is 18 and couples cannot have dependents under 18. 
VISTA's are given allowances for food, housing, and personal ex- 
penses, plus a stipen of fJiO.OO per month for the duration of service. 

Currently, 42(X) Volunteers are serving on tiie front lines in the 
War on (Poverty. There are requests for over 17,000 Volunteers.

alright, " I knotw how to work

He stood there talking. All 
the otialrs in the BaHroom had 
been set up, but they were 
sparsely filled. 

Rubin bantered wdlh a stu- 
dent sitting in the front How. 
Then he asloed him if he woidd 

come up on the stage and be 
his straight man. He wouldn't. 

"Who does he think he is?

About Viet Nam he said if

Editorial Section 

The Cram Plan 

A language is one subject for which 
cramming does absolutely no good. Lan- 
guage must be absorbed slowly. Unlike 
American History, for example, where 
dates, generals, and Supreme Court cases 
can be learned overnight, tested in the 
morning, and forgotten the next day, a lan- 
guage is cumulative; what is not learned 
completely at the beginning will haunt all 
the way through. 

Swing-shift freshmen in the College of 
Arts and Sciences are almost always reg- 
istered for languages on both the 101 and 
102 levels. Thus, they are compelled to com- 
plete two semesters of a language — a full 
year's work— in eleven weeks. This inten- 
sified program does work for many courses, 
but we do not feel it is particularly effec- 
tive in the area of foreign languages. 

We feel it would be far better if the 
swing-shifters were offered the 101 course 
over an eleven week period. Then, when 
they returned in the spring, they could join 
the rest of their class at the 102 level. 

The argument has been proposed that 
what is learned in 101 would be forgotten 
when the swing-shifters return in Febru- 
ary; therefore, they should take the entire 
101-102 sequence at once. 

We believe this factor is offset by a few 
legitimate arguments. 

Firstly, the cramming of 101-102 does 
not usually permit a complete understand- 
ing of the work. Much of the supplemen- 
tary work covered during the regular se- 
mester is omitted. Crammed vocabulary 
words are quickly forgotten. We believe it 
would be far better to completely learn the 
101 course over the entire summer. The 
student would be far less likely to forget 
over four months a slowly learned 101 foun- 
dation than they would a crammed 101-102 

Also, the first part of the 102 course in 
February is a review of 101, so that there 
would be a transitional period. Because 101 
would have been thoroughly learned, the 
review in February would be effective. The 
jump directly to 107 provides for no real 
review ; it is assumed the student has mas- 
tered the beginner's level. Under present 
summer conditions, this is often an er- 
roneous assumption. 

In addition, many Freshmen may wait 
until the following September to start the 
intermediate level, leaving a full year's 
time between the beginner and inter- 
mediate levels. 

Many swing-shifters have already failed 
the 101 level of their language. Many 
others just squeezed by . . . this level. Their 
performances in 107-108 is questionable. 

For many, the language requirement is 
the most difficult of all the Arts and Sci- 
ence requirements. The difficulty is magni- 
fied for someone out of high school the 
week before, who has to cram a demanding 

But the plain fact is that a language can- 
not be crammed, and the College of Arts 
and Sciences should re-examine its sum- 
mer policy re : language. We urge the adop- 
tion of an eleven-week 101 course for all of 
the reasons outlined above. 

Too many students have already become 
victims of this "cram plan". Because of the 
nature of the subject material, however, no 
such plan can achieve educational success. 
The consequences are already great, al- 
though they are not completely known. Be- 
fore still more failure — either in letter 
grades or achievement — occurs, this 
change shouW be instituted, effective for 
next summer's swing-shift class.

Campus Comment 

Vandals Roam in F-Lot 

To concerned students and the Acbninistration: 

We are writing in reference to the inadequate lighting and ap- 
parently insufficient police security in Student Parking Lot "F" 
near the Southwest Residential Area. 

In the space of less than one week, a series of thefts occurred 
in "F" lot, amounting to at least a $200 loss. On Monday, July 17, 
a complete set of taillights was stolen from a student's car. The fol- 
lowing night, a pair of tires, wheels, and hubcap)s was stolen from a 
car of the same model. "Hiese two thefts were compounded the fol- 
lowing Saturday night when a set of spinners was removed from a 
visitor's car. 

It is certainly apparent tiiat the lighting in "F" lot is entirely 
insufficient and should be improved Immediately. It is also evident 
that proper security measures are not being carried out. For the 
large number of student cars parked in tids lot, police protection is 
neither sufficient nor effective. It is difficult to determine whether 
the fault lies primarily with Improper lighting or ineffective security 
measures. The fact remains, however, that extensive damage has 
been done and this danger probably will continue, unless the problem 
is corrected. 

It is with a sincere hope that we ask the University administra- 
tion to take action to correct this situation. It is a personal con- 
clusion that if the Administration was half as efficient in this re- 
spect as it is in towing away student cars, "P' lot would be a safer 
place for student parking.

Has age finally caught up 
with de Gajulle? 

The French president, in his 
recent remarks urging French- 
speaking Quebec to seek its in- 
dependance, has caused de Gaul- 
le's prestige to plunge in Europe 
and North America. 

Hubert Beuve-Mery, editor of 
the French newspaper, Le 
Monde, stated in a front page 
editorial Tuesday that the 
French president is suffering 
from a "pathoJogical superego." 
The Canadian situation, how- 
ever, is just the latest of sev- 
eral events that have led many 
Frenchmen to believe that the 
General has reached the age 
(76) where he can no longer 
serve effectively as a head of 

Frendhimen are baffled by de 
GauMe's anti-Israel and pro- 
Arab poliioy in the Mid-East 
war. C3or»er!viatiifve leaders in 
France have held the belief that 
tile Presodent has over-estimat- 
ed his roile and the role of 
France in the World. The ifinaQ 

proof of this assertion, de Gaul- 
le's oppwnents say, is his new 
Canadian podicy. 

L.'Aurvre, a right-wing de 
Gaulle foe stated that the Gen- 
eral "could create disorder in 
Canada without profit for any- 
one and above all for France." 
Beuve-Mery asks the Gauliists 
in his editorial, "on what new 
reefs will they agree to wreck 
a ship whose course they seem 
to forget they, too, are respon- 
sible for guiding." Beuve-Mery 
concluded by urging Frenchmen 
to "hurry and organize them- 
selves with a view towards as- 
suming their future responsibili- 

Is the era of de Gaulle albout 
to end? Many Frenchmen say 
that it is, and a change is long 
over due. Lester Pearson agrees 
with them.

demand, rather than because 
they are good, and our first ob- 
ject should be to start such s

"admit you Ve a failure before you try 





Editor's note: Mike (Jarjian, States- 
man special reporter, recently returned 
frxym a six-meek stay in San Francisco. 
Below are a few of his thoughts and 
personal observations on the increasing- 
ly publicized world of the Hippie. 

No doubt Haight-Ashbury is the place 
that has made Uie word "Hippie" fa- 
mous. But what is the concept of Haight, 
what's it like out there in the Hippie ha- 
ven of the U. S. ? I had the chance to 
find out during a summer in San Fran- 

During the summer, Haight-Ashbury, 
a crossroad community just a short 
ride from San Francisco, harbors thou- 
sands of Hippies with an expansion rate 
of over two hundred a week and steadi- 
ly increasing throughout the summer. It 
is a moderate-sized oommunity much 
the same as Amherst, lined witti shops 
which, though once as common as those 
in Amherst, are now psychedelic. Those 
shops which don't fit "into the groove" 
can expect to lose a substantial anKiunt 
of business unless they move into it. The 
business they can expect will be from 
the "dumpy" tourists who come to town 
to check out the "hippies" about whom 
they have heard so much. 

During the week, the area is filled 
with hippies who go about their busi- 
ness (usually nothing). Weekends bring 
the tourists, an element which threatens 
to make Haight-Ashbury into a tourist 
attraction rather than a hiw>ie-haven. 

To get started as a hippie is no prob- 
lem at all. When one gets into town, he 
merely goes to the community bulletin 
board, located in the window of a shop, 
and reads the notices. They explicitly 
tell how to get cheap roonis, food for 
practically nothing, jobs (if so inclined), 
clothes, medical aid (free), legal aid, 
and drugs. 

OiHie set iq>, you are in for a unique 
experience, but you siiould aiso adjust 
the "crumby square philosophy you nnay 
have." The average hippie feels that 
setting a goal in life Is useless. It is 
better to admit you're a failure befiwe 
you try to succeed than to try to suc- 
ceed THEN admit to failure. "Why 
waste the time trying?" 

Love and friendship are the key words 
in Haight and you do all you can to 
help out your buddies. If someone has 
some extra money, usually it is given a- 
way to his friends who may have none. 
Many hippies can be seen and heard 
walking down the streets asking "Bud- 
dy, Do you have any spare coins?" Dope 
is another thing to be shared. The ex- 
hilirating experience it brings should 
not be hoarded but shared with the 

Finding a place to sleep is no problem 
at all because nxmey doesn't mean too 
much. If you can't weasle your way in- 
to a cheap room, the rooftops and alleys 
are free! But check first to make sure 
they are also "cap free". The hippies 
will tell you that "the droopy cops will 
haul you in for alley or rooftop inhabi- 

tation." Usually the police won't bother 
the hippies and the hippies won't bother 
them. Haight is the only place where I 
have seen x>eople sunbathing on the 
sidewalks while other pedestrians criss- 
cross their way through the hippie ob- 
stacle course. 

If you're inclined to blow pot or pop 
caps of acid or STP, the community bul- 
letin board offers only the suggestion 
that you find a reliable source in order 
to avoid parsley or glucose. I've been 
told that there are labs all over the 
city making all kinds of dope and that 
often a hippie may have a private pot 
garden in the area. 

Getting food inexjjensively appears to 
be no problem for the hippies. Again the 
bulletin board informs you that you can 
get good food at two thirds off from 
the dented can warehouse. These ware- 
houses advertise "limited quantity to a 
custonver" but the 'hippies have combat- 
ed this by digging out a California law 
prohibiting sellers from restricting the 
amount of goods a person may buy. So 
the warehouses have found themselves 
hippie infested and the corner grocer 
who is having a "one to a customer" 
sale on some of his food finds himself 
with a problem. 

My most interesting experience was 
the Be-In at Golden Gate Park. Actual- 
ly it wasn't a Be-In, it was an ancient 
Druid sun worshiping celebration which 
is held once every twenty eight years 
when the moon is full on June 21. 

I walked to the celebration with a 
hippie from New York named Ron and 
we were greeted in the park with the 
sight of over five thousand located in a 
large field surrounded with four bands. 
My first sight was a sun-worshiper's 
dance performed by hippies dressed in 
anci«it clothes with a background band 
of bongo drums and chimes. The hippies 
were all over the place and the bright 
colors they wore constituted a unique 
if not aesthetic sight. 

The celebration would last two days 
and all the food was free! On the first 
day, the food consisted of hundreds of 
pounds of fish, hamburg, chicken, car- 
rots, squash, bread and two halves of 

An open pit was dug and screens 
thrown over soon to be complemented 
with a fire l)eneath and food on the top. 
Since there were no cooking utensils, 
the hippies were content to serve their 
hamburgs and fish turned over and 
served with a shovel. (Yes, the same 
one used to dig the hole.) Unfortunately 
there was a shortage of plates so the 
hippies ripped apart the cardboard meat 
cartons and used the slabs for plates. I 
saw one hippie being served a hamburg 
out of the shovel on to his skate board. 
The dirt from his bare feet must have 
converted the half raw hamburg into a 
gourmet delight. When I heard my sto- 
mach rumble and felt hunger pains de- 
vetop, I too found myself eating cave- 
man style and had no trouble in over- 
coming the temporary stigma of being

shovel fed. After having my sto- 
mach filled with hamburg, pota- 
to salad, chicken, and bread, I 
decided to sit in on the festivities. 
The typical hippie attitude 
was reflected by a hippie sitting 
next to me who leaned over and 
asked, "Hey mem, what day is 
it?" "Wednesday", I replied. He 
acknowledged and continued to 
sniff a handful of incense he 
picked up in town. The hippies 
really go for the incense because 
it smells like flowers which, to 
them, symbolize love and gentle- 

I sat around listening to the 
"Grateful Dead" when suddenly 
a hippie stood up with a hand- 
ful of about thirty cigarettes. He 
threw them out to the crowd. 
The hippies went wild for the 
cigarettes, but when I saw them 
lighting up, drawing in, and hold- 
ing their breaths, I realized that 
they were not regular cigarettes. 
Soon the air was filled with the 
unique smell of burning mari- 
juana. The hippies loved it and 
in a short while they were pret- 
ty well stoned and dancing a- 
round all over the place. 

Everyone was having a great 
time and there was no violence 
at all. It was getting dark and I 
decided it was time to leave af- 
ter getting one more over - all 
look. As I passed the barbecue 
pit I heard thp cook yell out 
"Whose got a joint? Common 
now, if you wanna eat, you've 
got to keep the cook stoned. I 
laughed to myself as I saw three 
reefers handed to him. 

On my way out, the bands 
were still playing and more hip- 
pies were coming into the park 
for the night time celebration 
which would last another twenty 
four hours. The tourists at the 
edge of the field looked at me in 
wide eyes of disgust as I made 
my way through them wrapped 
in a green, frilled bedspread with 
flowers sticking out of my un- 
kempt hair. « 

I finally got back to my apart- 
ment and looked into the mir- 
ror. I laughed as I saw myself 
looking like I never thought I 
would in public. Then I remi- 
nisced and wondered — maybe the 
life of a hippie isn't half bad.

Status Quo Remains 

Adrntiiinistration officials saiid 
privately that of course no one 
could rule out a future halt in 
the bombing but they did insist 
that a suspension of the attacks 
on the North is not under con- 
sideration at the moment. 

One reason given wa.s that 
operations in the North recently 
have been concentrated in part 
against the North Vietnam 
transportation system. Reports 
to Washingi»n, officials said, in- 
dicate that this is showing ef- 
fec?ts in reducing the anununi- 
tk>n and other supplies available 
to North Vietnamese forces. 

The big issue on which John- 
son apparently will have to 
make a decision soon Is what to 
do about reported requests from 
Gen. William C. Westmoreland, 
U.S. commander, for more com- 
bat troops.

Education Survey Covers State 

The institute, with headquar- 
ters in CooUdge Middle, is di- 
rected by Mr. Walter J. SUva, 
whose wife is housemother for 
Calvin CooUdge Middle. Mr. 
Silva served a tour of duty in 
Japan with the U^. Army, and 
studied Japanese literature while 
he was there. He is quite en- 
thusiastic about the program, 
and hopes that it can lead to an 
exchange program. 

The students are college jun- 
iors to college graduates. Their 
occupations range from writer 
to banker to English teacher. 
The twenty-four women and 
eleven men live in the Southwest 
area with American roommates, 
and thus have to speak English. 
All have studied English for at 
least eight years in Japan, but 
little time is devoted to conver- 
sation. Classes are conducted in 
the towers. The students are 
free to audit any other courses 
they wish, with instructor ap-

tive endorsement, Clay indicated. 

In answer to a question the library director asserted, "there's 
a tradition in libraries that you don't have very comfortable 
chairs." He said It was to keep readers from falling asleep. 

(A letter to the Statesman had pointed out the dichotomy in 
campus studying facilities. The air conditioned library has uncom- 
fortable ehairs and the comfortable chairs of the Student Union are 
undesirable because of the uncomfortable air.) 

But continued Clay more seriously, the library should have "a 
variety of seating and lighting conditions." The New Library will 
have them, he ended. 

"The Commonwealth of Mas- 
sachusetts has always been a 
center of private higher educa- 
tion" is the way a recent re- 
port of the UM Office of Institu- 
tional Studies begins. 

During the past few years. UM 
has increased the number of out- 
of-state undergrad students at 
the Amherst campus, and a sur- 
vey was undertaken "to see if a 
similar trend is taking place at 
other institutions within the 

The results of the survey com- 
pleted by 69 private institutions 
were released last week. 

Enrollment figures for the 
years 1956, 1960, and 1966 show- 
ed a general decline In the aver- 
age proportion of Massachusetts' 
residents in the private collecies 
of the state with the greatest re- 
duction in the larger Institutions. 

~ Despite the major finding, ac- 
cording to U.S. Office of Educa- 
tion statistics, "No other state 
has a higher proportion of stu- 
dents wroUed in privately con- 
trolled institutions." 

An alternative way of expres- 
sing this statement is that, in 
1965, only 26% of the students 
attending college in Massachu- 
setts were enrolled in a public 
Imtltatlon, a smaller percentage 
than In any other state. 

But one must also consider the 
fact that only three other states 
(California, New York, and Penn- 
sylvania) have nwre accredited 
private institutions than t*»e 

Another factor is that states 
like Wyonung with only one col- 


'iSt&teBinan' EWtor 

lege, and that one public, have a 
100% enrollment in public in- 

Of all the students in college 
in California, 88 7r are in publk: 
institutions while of all the stu- 
dents attending college in New 
York, 49 7r are in public institu- 
tions. Pennsylvania, meanwhile, 
has a mere 29% in its pubUc 

Another finding reported was 
that for 1955, 1960. and 1966 "all 
respondents under religious con- 
trol had a larger proportion of 
Massachusetts residents on their 
respective campuses than the 
non-church-related institutions." 

In another area of the study, 
it was concluded that "the repre- 
sentation of Massachusetts' resi- 
dents between Metropolitan and 
Non - Metropolitan Boston col- 
leges and universities has tend- 
ed toward equalization." 

For the Metropolitan Boston 
area the heaviest representation 
of Massachusetts' residents is in 
those institutions with over 5.000 
undergrads — t*ie lowest-in-state 
representation in those institu- 
tions with under 500 students. 

For the state the average per- 
centage representation of Mas- 
sachusetts' residents among un- 
dergrads in 61 private Institu- 

tions was 50.4% fai 1955 but only 
43.9% in 1966. 

It was also reported that: 
"Coeducational, private insti- 
tutions enroll a rather heavy 
concentration of Massachusetts' 
residents. Private colleges and 
universities for men only aver- 
aged slightly less than one Mas- 
sachusetts' resident in every 
three undergrads during 1955-66. 
Private institutwns for women 
only have a somewhat larger

One of the three group lead-

Amherst to be a quiet and beau- 
tiful town. She is most impressed 
by the size of our country 
(Japan is about the size of Mon-

thing is bigger here. She finds it 
easy to make friends with 
Americans, and that Americans 
are kind and open.

Adminstration Seeks Gov't 
Changes for Washington D.C 

WASHINGTON OB— Two years after home rule for the District 
of Columbia ran a ■ground In the House, the Johnson administration 
hopes to win approval this weelt of a more limited reform of Wash- 
ington's government. 

But even if this hoife Is reaUced, Washington residents wlU 
remain almost entirely voteless. 

While the same Republican-Southern Democrat coalition that 
sank the home rule plan still is operating, with strengthened num- 
bers on paper, indications are that the more limited plan may win 
the OOP support needed to push it through. 

A vote is scheduled Wednesday or Thureday. 

Because the House committee which luindles district affairs 
has a built-in majority a«:ainst anything remotely resembling self- 
government for the capital, the admlnlstratl(m has resorted to ex- 
traordinary parliamentary means to get around this roadblock. 

Two years ago, it brought the Senate-passed home rule bill to 
one floor by getting 218 members to adgn a discharge petition to piy 
the measure out of the District Committee, only to see the effort 
collapse when a compromise proposal for a charter study was ap- 
proved by the House. It died in a Senate-House deadlock. 

This year, President Johnson proposed to reorganize the dis- 
trict's form of government under his executive reorganization pow- 
ers. Such an order takes effect automatically after 10 days unless 
one branch of Congress vetoes It, 

He suggested replacing the three presldentlally appointed oom- 
mlssioners with a single commissioner and a representative, nine- 
member council. While all wouM be aiH>olnted, the change could lay 
the basis for a later attempt to convert them Into an elected mayor 
and council. 

Instead of to the District Committee, headed by Rep. John L. 
McMiUan, D-S.C, this proposal went to the Government Catena- 
tions Committee, whose chairman. Rep. William L, Dawwwi, D-IU.,

A. M. A Study Shows Younger Marijuana Users 

CHICAGO Ufi — The Amertoan Meddoal Asso- 
ciation said Sunday there are IndilcatdonB that 
the use of marijuana may be spreadiing among 
h^h school students. 

The AMA'B Committee on AloohoUsm and 
Drug Dependence said in a statement that It 
noted that urtian areas and college towns at- 
tract those who participate in the drug traffic 
The convnittee said about young people: 

'It is In the nature of adolescence to seek new 
experdences, to question seM, family, and society, 
to try on and discard new guises of behavior, to 
reoondie aiipostag pulls and strains, and to act 
Uke dMA and eduBit. 

"Such expetieiKe s oontrihute <o personal

ment end social ijnjgi^eas, though in some in- 
stances the behavior may afppear to some view- 
ers as thai^htteas, irresponsible, or rebelAoufl." 

The AMA statement said that no physical de- 
pendence or tolerance for marijuana has been 
demomtrated and it has not been shown as yet 
that marijuana causes any lasting mental or 
physical changes. The statement stressed, how- 
ever, that marijuana is of concern as a medloo- 
l^al problem "because it Is a drug, because its 
possession and distribution violate federal and 
many state laws and because even occasional 
ase has psychiatric implications." 

The statement continued: 

Tersons who use maiiijuana contlnuBliy and 
as the symiptomartilc expression of fx^rhologicai

UM Doctor Advises 
Tanners - - Go Slow 


Health hints *or the sun tan cult are beaimg posted by the UM 
Health service as the sihy sun attenupts to sneak throuigh the layer 
o(f cttouds that have floated albove the sunnmer sky tftiius i£ar this 


Dr. Richard J, JennlnigB gave ipodnters and Ifaots on tannimig in 
a recent Statesman tatervlietw. 

The toest time to get a tan— and the worst time to get a burn- 
is when the sun iis directly overhead, aoconxling to Dr. Jennlnigs. 

Time in the sun, however, is an individual thing. People who 
already have tans from Bermuda or a sun-lamp have less to worry 
al)Out than most, the doctor said, but complexion Is the main 
determinant of time in the sun. 

Redheads are most lilwly to bum, followed by blonds, then 
with brunets and black-haired people least aipt to bum. 

Dr. Jennings said rediheads should not take more than ftve to 
10 minutes of sun near noon early in the season, and even later in 
the season should not take too much more than ithat. 

Brunets, too should take it easy at first, according to Dr. 
Jennings. Late in August these people can safeOy stand two or 
three hours if they have already tanned. 

No matter the person's complexion, he or sihe detemiines his 
or iher own limit. 

Dr. Jennings said the safest way to tan is to get no more sun 
than will slightly pinken the skin each day. He said people who 
follow this rule will probably have a l>etter tan than others at the 
end of the summer, though the method is a little slower. 

This pinkness, called "erythema", indicates that the skin and 
irts pigment cells have been stimulated and tanning will soon 

Some sim-tan oils and orealms are very good. Dr. Jennings 
said, and he assumes most comipaniies use the five or six best 
fonnuulas, though he wouldn't want to "plug" any brand. 

Baby oil and olive oil — ^thougfh the latter is "less aesthetic" — 
moisten the skin and protect lit that way. Dr. Jennings said. 

For sunburn. Dr. Jennings recoanmendB cool soaks and ice if 
the bum is not bad, with asipirin to relieve the pain. 

Most sunburn creams are good, he said, and many contain an 
anesthetic to relieve the pain of a burn. He warned that some peo- 
ple may develop an allergy to the anesthetic and if the cream 
irritates more than it soothes, It should not be used. 

No cream slhouM be applied if the bum produces blisters with 
fluid in them, Dr. Jennings said, since applying the cream could 
break the blisters. 

If the bum blisters, or if" it produces sufficient discomfort to 
prevent a student from sleeping or studying, the person should 
go to the infirmary for treatment, Dr. Jennings said. 

There Is little dangper of heat stroks in tWs climate, accord- 
ing to Dr. Jennings. He pointed out that it strikes mainly older 
and younger persons. 

Persons playing tennis in the hot sun do lose bodily fluids and 
salt, he said, tmit with proper p(recautions and rest this is not 

Students shoxild watch their exposure to sun. Dr. Jennings 
said, and with proper care they can leave Amiherst with a tan 
instead of a bum in September,

Reviewers Not In Concert 

What choices, then, are left 
us in the realm of foreign 
policy? I see only two: im- 
perialistic adventuring and 
the active promotion of world 
peace, and which of these al- 
ternatives is likely to supply 
the more favorable conditions 
for the continuance of con- 
stitutional democracy among 
us is hardly open to reason- 
able doubt. Even wars fought 
for the most generous ends 
still spell disaster for that 
C/Omplex set of values which 
our Constitution alms to up- 
hold and promote.

Reaction To Carolyn Hester Is Mixed 



"She ought to tome hack alone. . . and sing 

By OHET WEINERMAN, 'Statesman' Edltor-ln^hief 

Texas bom Carolyn Hester appeared In concert last Wednesday night at the Student Union 
Ballroom. Hailed by many as the fastest-rising performer on today's folk singing horizon, she was 
smnewhat less than impressive In her UMass outing. 

The expected Carolyn Hester. (Press r^ease photo^ Asem^ 
for the Perf<MTOin£: Arts, Inc.) 

It seemed as thouigfh most olf the aaidience ex- 
peioted ito ihear pure iJoQk mniuBdc. Miss Hester's 
advance pufbldcdty phcrtos showed her in a coim- 
try setting, dx^essed in a ruffled gown, and hold^ 
inig a ifolk guitar. She had announced that her 
early influence was Burl Ives, and she had ach- 
ieved suidh reknown thait she was sdnigled out as 
one of mifteen >i)eiifo(rimers in Hd-JFli Stereo's 
Basic Library of American Folklore. 

Yet, the repetoire she did was hardly pure 
fvXk. She came out on stage and did a couple of 
numbers by herself, and then for the rest of the 
evening: was accompanied by drums, lead guitar, 
and bass guitar — all electric. Miss Hester her- 
self played an electric Fender. Almost all her 
music was folk-rock. 

This does not mean to dmiply that her foUc- 
Kxxk was noit good. But it was someihow like go- 
ing to hear Bob Dylan, and hearing htoi play a 
trumpet a la Louis Armstrong; it may \ie good, 
but (it's jiust not what you came for. 

Miss Hester's voice was superb. She has a 
oomp^Ung^ range of three octaves. Her voice 

was charged with emotion in smne of Yier songs, 
and when she hit her high notes, the ftate-like 
quality of her vcrfce genuinely thrilled the senses. 

She did not seem to be ait home wiith tiie elec- 
tric igudtar, however. Often, she was searching 
for chords, and Sn some oases missed them com- 
pletely. Her lead gtiiitariBt diid the budk of the in- 
strumentation ifor her; Hester was relegated 
to nhyrthm gudtar. 

Her material was good and bad. "Hallelujah", 
"That's my Song*', and "This Life I'm Living" 
were periu^>s her best numbers. Some of her 
electrical songs were monotonous, however, and 
one wonders why she chose to sing "Playboys 
and Playglrls" of all the Dylan songs there 
were to select from. 

The concert was mildly enjoyable. I thdnk that 
at some fuiture daite, she oughit to come back a- 
lone, with a ifolk guitar and a simiple dress, and 
sing in the styfle that has made her famous. The 
eleotrioal effect was just too shockSng to be

Her Voice Is Exceptional 

By ORIX]rORY IMILLER, 'Statesman' Reporter 

Caixjlyn Hester is on the way to the top in the folk world. Her 
repetoire is breezy, her style is exciting, her beauty is uncommon, 
and her voice is exceptional. 

Miss Hester sings contemporaiy folk songs which she has 
adapted to lier own brand of Polk rock music. The songs of Tim 
Hardin and Bob Dylan are also represented. Miss Hester doesn't 
write most of her material, but even so she Stays far away from the 
stereotyped folk song of a few years ago. 

Her smile reaches out into the audience when she speaks In 
her soft Texas drawl. Miss Hester Is not a protester, but a singer. 
She doesn't pretend to be a country girl. She was raised In our 
urban society and she sings the songs of that society The audience 
realizes that here Is a singer who has great versatility as a per- 

Miss Hester has a voice of great range which is never miuted by 
the power of her musicians. She uses her voice well, displaying her 
talent in such songs as "Sing Hallelujah". 

Miss Hester's band, consisting of lead and bass guitars and 
drums, pours out a solid background of folk. Yet her roost powerful 
songs are those without the background music. 

Her voice Is of a quality that should be heard without distrac- 
tion. It Is clear, high and exciting. Perhaps she would have been 
even more Impressive wHh less folk rock and more pure folk music 

As it was. Miss Hester cttmbined great personal beauty, show- 
manship, and refreshing talent in giving this concert. 

Miss Hester finished with the title song from her latest L.P. 
"Thats My Song". The applause of the audience brought her bajck 
to sing "Playboys and Playgirls" by Bob Dylan. The applause at this 
time showed the audience's appreciation of a fine concert

I was told that summer 
school was real touglh. May- 
be it would be if we didn't 
have an activity to relieve 
our anxieties. All work and 
no play can make Jack a 
very dull boy. But on Tues- 
days and Thursdays Jack 
can be found in the lower 
lacrosse field playing soft- 
ball to his heart's content. 

Each team is made up of a 
captain and eight other men. The 
only requirement to play is that 
you have nine members, it 
doesn't make any difference if 
you use the same men each week 
or not, so long as there are nine. 
Besides Just playing for the en- 
joyment of Softball, there'll be 
play-offs of the six best teams 
on August 22, 24, and 29. The 
team that wins these will not 
only have the title of champions 
for the summer session, but 
each member will receive a 
trophy signifying his great skill 
in working to mold a chaanpion- 
ship team.

have showed strong and weak

SSEC Listens For Most Of Meeting 

Amherst Community Theatre 
Set To Stage Funny Girl 


A group of local high school 
and collep^e students who share 
a strong interest in the theater 
have organized their own sum- 
mer theater company, and are 
polishing up final rehearsals of 
the Broadway musical "Funny 
Girl," to be presented August 
18, 19, and 25, 26 at the Am- 
herst High School Auditorium. 
This is one of the first perform- 
ances of "Funny Girl" by an 
amateur group, which has just 
closed a three year Broadway 

The Amherst Community Sum- 
mer Theater wa-s org'anized in 
April by three Amherst Hi^h 
School students. They wanted 
to present a recent Broadway 
production to the community 
and provide an excitins: .siunmer 
project for local students. They 
approached George Bentley of 
Amherst and asked him to be 
their director. He accepted, but 
other commitments delayed the 
opening: of rehearsals until the 
first week in July. 

The company draws its mem- 
bers from the Amherst-North- 
ampton area. Most of them 
work; a few are attending the 

'Statesman' Reporter 

university summer sessions. Re- 
hearsals are held nightly in the 
Amherst High School Auditor- 

This reporter recently talked 
to director George Bentley a- 
bout "Funny Girl." George is 
also in charge of choreography 
and plays a small part as a 
member of the Zigfield Follies 
show. Since he also has a job at 
Amherst College, I asked him 
If he managed to get any sleep. 
His enthusiasm for the show 
apparently makes up for any 
lost sleep, for he replied, "Some- 
times I get inspired to choreo- 
graph a dance at 5 A.M." He 
reports that the show is coming 
along well. 

It may seem unusual lor a 
new group to tackle such a big 
job as producing "Funny Girl," 
but many in the group are 
former members of the local 
Thespian Troupe 1333. which 
has a fine roputation lor its 
earlier performances. 

All tickets are reserved seats, 
at $1.00 each and may be re- 
served by calling the box office 
at 253-5989. 


'Statesman' Editor 

William A. Lambert, the Uni- 
versity's landscap)e architect, ad- 
dressed the Summer Student 
Executive Council last night. 

From the SSEC secretary, 
Gale Palmer, came a suggestion 
that students report insufficien- 
cies in dorm water pressure to 
the Council so that they may 
be relayed to President Lederle. 
If there is a problem, the pres- 
ident told her he would attempt 
to remedy it. 

In addition, the student gov- 
ernment authorized the spend- 
ing of $20 more for its Las 
Vegas Nite. The total amount 
appropriated for the event so 
far comes to about $225. 

And the Council rejected the 
constitution of Calvin Codlidge 

That, and a certain amount 
of talking, is what the Exec 
Council did in its meeting last- 
ing over two hours. 

Lambert, Invited to speak by 
Councilor Jerry LeBeau, at- 
tempted to answer the question 
of why more lighting isn't avail- 
able in the "F" parking lot. 

Although the building boom 
has moved fast in the last dec- 
ade, utilities expansion for the 
University in the same period 
has moved slower, he explained. 
The planning engineer discussed 
overall camipus building pro- 
gress and returning to the ques- 
tion raised of thefts in the "F" 
lot, asked: 

"Is lighting the only an.swer 
to what you need?" 

He offered the possibility 
that a person removing tires 
from a car might look like its 
owner and the prevalent desire 
not to get involved with pre- 
venting wrong-doing. 

He cited a case Where a car's 
tires were stolen on Butterfield 
Terrace although the vehicle 
was parked under a street light 
and the road was fairly well- 

Pointing out that UMass re- 
quests for additional lighting 
and campus paving have l>cen 

ignor«^ or cut back by the 
Legislature, he told the stu- 
dents that the "F" lot lighting 
was temporary and rented 
from a utility. 

At the end of his talk, Lam- 
bert stressed the student role 
in preventing vandalism and 
thefts and in helping to appre- 
hend the violators. "I'm leaving 

you with your own problems," 
he said. 

Qne of the CouncU members, 
upset at the time that the Uni- 
versity official consumed, com- 
plained that "he briefly touch- 
ed on the problem at hand . . . 
and left the solution to the 
problem in the hards of the 
'apathetic students!'' 

Swing Shift Rumors 
Dispelled by Administrators 

by CHET U^INER>L\N, 'Statesman' Editor In Chief 

There have been several rumors circulating on campus concern- 
ing the success or failure of the swing-shift freshmen. One rumor has 
it that over 509f of all the swing-shifters had a 1.0 or lower at mid- 
semester. An extension of this rumor says that over half of the 
summer freshmen will flunk out by June. 

All of these storltwi are false, according to representatives of the 
Provost's office, the Registrar's office, and the Admissions office. 

Robert Doolan of the Admissions office said: "If they performed 
that poorly, we would have cut out the program two or three years 

Mid-semester nuirks are not indicative of anything, according to 
Doolan, so that no information has yet been gathered on this current 
class. "We will have no idea how they are performing until Sept." 

The Director of the UM Summer School, William Vcnman, com- 
mented that "as far as the summer session is concerned, we have had 
no reports of any kind about the progress of these students. We have 
had the suggestion that language be changed, but this has been 
forwarded to the language department. 

Venman continued by stating that there probably has been a 
slightly higher flunk-out rate due to a number of contributing factors. 

The swing-shift program first began in 1964, so the first swing- 
shifters will be graduating this coming June. A truly accurate analy- 
sis of the program cannot be made until at least that time. 

"The general swing-shift program is now undergoing a careful 
reexamination," said Venman, "to determine its worth." 

Every single swing-shifter is entitled to return in January, even 
if he gets a 0.0 cumulative average. The swing-shifter follows the 
regular cut-offs of any regular University student. Thus, if he gets 
below a .8 the student must take a semester off. For the swing- 
shifter, that would be the fall semester, which he must take off any- 
ways. Thus, he cannot be refused admission in February. 

However, his sumnter average is included In his total cumulative 
average, so in the spring semester he must meet the total Cniversity 
minimumi cume requirement for his class or he will flunk out. 

Many Freshmen have been under the misbelief that if they do 
poorly this summer, they can start with a clean slate in February. 
The truth is that their summer average is a permanent part of their 
academic average. "They follow the regular pattern of every UM 
student," Doolan reiterated. 

But as of this writing, there have been no statistics compiled 
on the progress of the class of 1971. 

South College Evacuated by Administrators 

South College was recently evacuated by the administration and 
the CoUegn of Arts and Sciences administration has moved in to 
take its place. 

The dean of the College will take over the former office of 
President I<ederle. 

In addition to the dean, vice-dean, associate dean, and deans for 
each of the four classes, formerly located at Bartlett, the building 
will house the Slavic language department, Which is moving from 
Arnold House; the philosophy department, moving from Machmer; 
and the comparative literature department, moving from Bartlett. 

Graduate assistants from various departments will also make 
use of the building. 

On the first floor of the old red brick structure will be its only 
classroom — for use of the philosophy department. 

According to Robert W. Wagner, associate dean of the college, 
the building is expected to be entirely settled by August 24. He also 
estimated that 80% of the buildings on campus are used in some 
way by the largest College.

First in A Series 

New Professor Tells Impressions 
Of Umass Facilities, Students 

By PAT PETOW, "iStatesmaii' Editor 

(Thlg is the first of a series of articles based on interviews with visiting faculty and new UMass 

**^OnTof Roland Sarti's overall impressions of his recent weeks at the University is that "The stu- 
dents are alert. They are willing to ask provocative questions, they don't accept the word of the teach- 
er as a God-given word." 

And, the new history profes- 
sor added, this quality of alert- 
ness is a stimulating difference 
of'.vn.n in* University *nd Ohio 
State University where he 
tauf ht for the last two years. 

As a method of teaching, 
Sarti's prefers "give and take" 
as opposed to lectures and their 
regurgitation. He called the lec- 
ture system "not educational . . . 
(but) mechanical." But In the 
short terms of summer sohooQ, 
the lecture is a necessary evil, he 

Ohio State is a much larger 
instdtution than UMass, although 
some of its size difficulties will 
probably be experienced here, 
Sarti said. 

But compounding the prob- 
lems of size, Ohio State has a 
quarter system in which there 
are three quarters between Sep- 
tember and June and one during 
the sununer. The semester sys- 
tem, he asserted, Is much better: 

"One of the problems in his- 
tory is that you deal with such 
Jong periods of time. When you 
have to compress several cen- 
turtes in a short period, It be- 
comes one blurb." As it It, Sarti 
said he was "moving very fast" 
in his twelve week course. 

An undesirable aspect of the 
university-level curriculimi Is Its 
standardizs'tion, a factor related 
to the many required courses, 
Sarti pointed out. Probably the 
only solution would be to keep 
such courses to a minimum, he 

While the students are given 
little opportunity to explore on 
their own, standardization of 
curriculum makes the larger and 
larger student bodies easier to 
deal with from the administrar 


tive point of view, said the new 
UMass professor. 

Greater contact between dis- 
ciplines is another area of uni- 
versity education needing im- 
provement in Sarti's opinion. 
Perhaps, compartmentization is 
enforced through a formal struc- 
ture, he said, but Sarti was un- 
able to say that a restructuring 
in itself would bring the vast 
knowledge of different fields to- 

Another impartant question 
for today's imiversity, according 
to Sarti, is "What role does the 
faculty Itself play in formulating 
University policy?" 

The administration has a ten- 
dracy to look on the faculty as 
hired hands, he said. But the 
growing willingness of faculty to 
take on administrative duties is 

hewing to solve the problem, 
Sarti continued. 

Sarti, a specialist in con- 
temix>rary Italian history, did 
graduate work at Rutgers, 
spending a year in Italy as a 
F\ilbright scholar doing research 
for his doctoral thesis. 

The subject of the thesis was 
the economic and social con- 
flicts in Fascist Italy with an 
empiiasis on the role of the in- 

He said he expected the de- 
partment to offer a course in his 
field within a year. When asked 
if he throught UMass woikld be 
among his first choices for grad- 
uate work, he said, "As com-

Look Park Be- In To 
Accent Nature's Beauty 

by JOHN KELLY, 'Statesman' Editor 

Be-Ins seem to be the order of the day. They vary from demon- 
strations against the destruction of our redwood forest to eat-ins 
at your local Ho-Jo's, 

Bob Willfong, a senior at UM, is planning a Be-In, the first ever 
held in western Massachusetts, to be called the General Casimlr Pu- 
laski Ecumemical Be-In in honor of the shall park in Northampton 
of that name. 

Bob struck upon this idea one day when he was dozing in the 
park. He awoke suddenly and reflected upon the beautiful trees, 
flowers, birds, and people. There was something wrong though; the 
people seemed bored, unaware of the beauty nature offered and un- 
aware of the existence of their neighbor. He then realized that there 
were a number of groups in the Pioneer Valley that never even as- 
sociated with each other. Not only did they not associate with each 
other but they refused to acknowledge that groups other than their 
own existed. 

Bob Is planning his Be-In for Sunday, August 20th at IxxHc Park 
In Northampton starting at noon and lasting till sundown. The Be-In 
is for every group In the area from University students to local hip- 
pies, teenie hoppers to Puerto Rican migrant workers. He wants "all 
people" who feel "it's good to be alive" to partake in his revision. 

There will be free food, music, dancing, happening entertain- 
ment, and balloons. Bring your own flowers to wear in your hair.

Chinese Press Sounds Warning 

Two Quintets Play Before 
Enthusiastic Audience Last Monday 

By JOHN BAILLIEUL, 'Statesman' Reporter 

Monday night a small but enthusiastic audience in the Student Union Ballroom received a dou- 
ble treat in the form of a combined concert by the Herb Pomeroy Quintet and the Fine Arts Wood- 
wind Quintet. The groups presented a tastefully arranged program of classical, jazz, amd what miglift 
be called "third stream" music. 

The evening got under way with the Fine Arts Woodwind Quintet playing Franz Danzl's Quintet 
in B-flat Major, Opus 56, Number 1. The piece provided an excellent showcase to display the talents 
of the members of the Quintet. Solo passages were executed with uncommon poise and were accented 
with tastefully balanced ensemble playing. The third and fourth movement* were as transparent as 
crisp sununer air. 

The Herb Pomeroy Quintet, who next introduced a piece called Evil Irving, which was composed 
by Mr. Pomeroy, performed equally well. Sometimes sounding liite Diz and Bird, Mr. Pomeroy and his 
alto saxophonist Charlie Mariano played imaginative jazz solos throughout the evening. 

Mr. Mariano abandoned hls^ ^ 

a problem. The precise con- 
trolled playing of the woodwind 
ensemble was often overbalanced 
by the brashness of the jazz. 

AP Special Correspondent 

A note of alarm has crept in- 
to the official Chinese Commu- 
nist press. From its tone, there 
is a suggestion that much of 
China has been turned into a 
battlefield and that a climactic 
engagement is in prospect to the 
tense struggle to determine the 
nation's destiny. 

Everywhere in China, the par- 
ty press appeals constantly for 
support of those forces seeking 
to Impose or restore total auth- 
ority of the faction headed by 

Chairman Mao Tse-tung and De- 
fense Minister Lin Piao against 
those backing Pres. Liu Shao- 
chl, whom the official press still 
calls "China's Khrushchev." It 
doesn't mention him by name. 

There is no way of checking 
the authenticity of reports con- 
cerning either side in the strug- 
gle. Posters of the Maoist Red 
Guards often turn out to be de- 
liberately confusing, and the of- 
ficial press is a propaganda in- 
strument. Even foreigners on the 
scene can tend to misread what 
is going on.

give the audience a sample of 
Indian classical music played on 
an Instrument called the nagas- 
waram. Used in the temples in 
south India, the instrument is 
the counterpart of our own oboe 
or English horn. 

The only disappointment in 
the entire evening came in 
the two pieces written for double 
quintet. The marriage of jazz 
and Classical music is quite new, 
and like any new marriage it 
does not always work with 
balance and harmony. In both

Scenes, which made its premiere 
at this performance, balance was 

Hopefully this problem is not in- 
herent in the music form and 
will be remedied as more pieces 
are written. 

The Library Cult! 
A Sign of The Times? 


The library has long been considered a place of sohtude for readers and studious intellectuals. A 
library is built as a place of study, research, and academic endeavor. Let's penetrate Goodell's concrete 
walls and scrutinize the inhabitants to see who is up to what. 
Inside the male and the fe- chick Is roosting. 

male mammals are game for 
the mating season. And what 
better hunting ground could 
they find than Goodell? That 
book on reserve, or that chaip 
ter which must be read are 
choice covers for the action 
which ensues. 

Each level of the Ube is a 
stage for the various actors 
who play out their roles. Over 
in a comer, on the main level, 
there is a choice actor at a 
single desk. It is none other 
than conscientious Billy Book- 
worm. But don't let him fool 
you. Ah the old cliche has it, 
you cannot judge a book by its 
cover. And if you pause to flip 
through Billy's pages, you'll 
find he begins chapter one as 
an undercover agent. What he 
is uncovering is a tough babe 
in hIp-huggIng desert beige 

To the next level is Fratern- 
ity Frank. Frank has been 
TGIFiing (Thank God Its Fri- 
day!) all week at Mikes' and 
the Drake. And every after- 
noon, he decides to spread his 
high spirits around. With one 
breath in your direction, you 
would ferment. Do you think 
his happy condition disturbs 
his Conscience? Not in the 
least, and he continues to wob- 
ble about the frat level until 
one of his Greek brothers ush- 
ers the unimhiblted soul ifrom 
the library. 

Merry Makeout now enters 
the libe scene. Although she has 
spent the last twenty minutes 
primping for her grand ent- 
rance, she casually sashays 
through the glass portals with 
all the nonohalance she can 
feign. She feels Hike a million 
dollars in her mint green 
stretch slacks and scooped-neck- 
ed jersey. She has made up her 
mdnd to catch every male eye 
iwithiin sightirvg distance. You 
would be noticed too if you had 
■half your arm buried under 
janglirvg gold charm bracelets. 

Meanwhile, behind the stacks 
Is an enterprising young grad- 
uate student. This form stealth- 
ily sneaking along Is none other

sion of the hunt is: Are you a

corner. Probably Irene could 
give the current population of 
Peru, the government expendi- 
tures for the last year, and any 
statistics which most have to 
look up In an almanac. 

Irene may have been on "Col-

society which feels that Irene 
Is socially underdeveloped. After 
all any really smart girl knows 
that reference books are never

ed that a rooftop swimming 
pool will be added to the facil- 
ities already available at the 
library. The new medical school 
will just have to wait. Maybe 
the 1970 class will leave a juke 
box for further entertainment 
on the library patio. Then the 
place will really swing. It will 
then be quite conclusive to t h e

I've got pennant fever. Lets go Sox, Sock 'em Sox" 

COLLEGIAN News Editor 

BOSTON — A year ago 
the "Boston Bums" were in 
the cellar of the American 
League. The people of Bos- 
ton couldn't have cared 
much less about the Red 
Sox or baseball in general. 
Of course there were a few 
loyal patrons of Fenway 
Park, but they were few 
and far between. 

Take a look at the people of 
Boston now. They co«uldn't Ccire 
much more about "their boys" 
as the Sox somehow seem to 
enter into every conversation. 
"What do you think of the 
Sox?" is more popular in the 
Hub than "Is it hot enough for 


Fenway Park, the monster 
and all (thafs the left field 
wall, for those who still think 
that it's Dick Radatz), now 
bulges at the seams for every 
game. The few patrons of a 
year ago have been joined by 
countless more. 

A disease known as pennant 
fever has hit Boston in epi- 
demic form. In fact it has hit 
the whole of Massachusetts and 
much of the rest of New Eng- 
land. People come to Fenway 
from all over to see a second 
place ball dub that has the 
possibilities of bringing the 
first pennant to Boston since 

The fans are enthusiias.tic 
about everything that takes 
place on the field. From a sim- 
ple swing of the bat to a spar- 
kling play the dheers ring out. 
What was cause for boos and 
hisses last year is cause for

wiild jubilation now. 

You can feel the spark 
throughout the park (no pun 
intended) as you watch the 
play. That is, if your're lucky 
enough to have been able to 

get a ticket to the game and 
make it to the park through 
the inunense traffic jams. 

Boy, does Boston ever need 
a sta<iium. A stadium with a 
decent capacity and that's 
easily accessable by all means 
af transportation. Oh well, 
that's another story. 

'Today a victory — tomorrow 
a pennant," one of the fan car- 
ried posters at Fenway Park 
read at last Tuesday nights 
twi-nig'ht double header against 
the Kansas City Athletics. It 
doesn't look too hopeful the 
way that the Sox have played 
the last week or so, but any- 
thing is possible. 

"I've got pennant fever. Let's 
go Sox, Sock 'em Sox," were 
only a few of the other posters 
and signs at the game. The sur- 
prisingly sharp play of pitcher 
Al "Sparky" Lyle and other 
newcomers to the BoSox have 

prompted such reactions frmn 
the fans. 

The comebacks that the Sox 
seem to miracuJously pull off 
every coupJe of games or so are 
another big part of the '67 sea- 
son. As one twelve year old ex- 
pert on the Red Sox that I 
know puts it, "The Red Sox of 
1%7 are a comeback team." 

A big comeback is just What 
they seem to need now. Maybe 
the road trip coming up will do 
it. Another big winning streak 
certainly wouldn't hurt things 
for the Sox. But, things are 
getting tougher all over the 

They're going to have to play 
a lot better ball than they have 
been to keep the fans happy. 

Editor's Note: Richard Kline 
will also report for the States- 
man on the next Red Sox home

Despdte rumors to the con-

will be allowed to attend UMass 
in the fall as a regular, part-

David P. Lawrence, the assoc-

the 'Statesman' that no individ- 
ual in the program could take 
a course a.s a special fall stu- 

"It is artriiotly an academic

"It would have to be an ex-

a student to take fall courses, 
said Lawrence. 

From the College pf Arts and

Umass Faculty Salaries Rated High In National Survey 


'Statesman' Editor 

A report detailing faculty sal- 
ary information at UMas.s and 
including a survey of faculty 
salaries at .selected colleges in 
the northeast has been publish- 
ed by the University'.s Office of 
Institutional Studies. 

Twenty-eight schools partici- 
pated in the survey for the 
academic year 19661967. Of 
these all the data is confidential 
and identified only by code 
number except in the case of 

Althoui;:h the University rank- 
ed low amon)>: the institutions 
in terms of fringe benefits, in 
terms of median base salary 
the University in 1966 1967 
ranked fonsiderably hlKhor: 
(Mghth for professor (that is, 
only seven institutions paid 
more), sixth for associate pro- 
fessor, first for assistant profes- 
sor, and fifteenth for instructor. 

According to this calculation, 
UMass should have a deluge of 
applicants for positions of as- 
sistant professor. 

The median salary paid hero 
for professor in the spring of 
1967 was $17,036; for associate 
professor, $13, 136; for assistant 
profe.ssor, $10,736; and for in- 
structor, $S,236. Those figures 
include increases over 1966-1967. 
However, the addition of fringe 
iMMM'fits changes the picture 

The institutions in the survey 
paying the largest amount of 
compensation (base salary and 
fringe benefits i had for their 
medians in 1966-1967: $21,384 
for professor, $14,5S3 for assoc- 

iate professor, $11,103 for as- 
sistant professor, and $9,214 for 

By the spring of 1967 for the 
University's 1.58 professors the 
comiMMisation range (l>as«' sal- 
ary and $136 worth of health 
insurance) was $12,336 to $24,136. 

For 163 associate professors, 
the minimiun c«)mpensatlon was 
$10,536 and the maximum $19, 


For 270 assistant |)rofessors, 
the range was $7,936 to $14,436. 

For 132 instructors, the ranjfe 
was $6,536 to $8,236. 

The survey part of the report 
was prepared by Tufts Univer- 
sity involving the following in- 
stitutions: Bates, Boston Col-

Senate Rejects

The 6-DayWar inlhe Middle East 

Out of Israel 


Ihf VNsocialtd Prfss 

The Summer Student Ex- 
ecutive Council last week re- 
jected the constitution of 
Calvin Coolidge Upper for 
two reasons. The house has 
no officers and it is a poor- 
ly-written document said 
SSEC Constitution Commit- 
tee Chairman Frank Gori. 

"The constitution looks 
like it was put together in 
one hour with no reference 
to anything," he stated. 

Like the Student Senate, 
the Council this year is pass- 
ing on constitutions. But un- 
like the regular student gov- 
ernment, the summer body 

cannot accord RSO status to 
an organization. As a mat- 
ter of fact, the SSEC exists 
because of the tenuous ap- 
proval of the Senate. 

The recommendations of 
the summer council, how- 
ever, are weighed by the 
Dean of Students. 

It is likely that the 30 to 
10 residents of the upper 
house will last out the sum- 
mer without a student gov- 
ernment of their own. 

In other announcements, pre- 
liminary work on a questionnaire 
to be distributed to swing-shift 
freshmen was reported. 



Collegian, Statesman Sponsor Book Sale 


The Massachusetts Daily C'ollejjian and the 
Sunniier Statesman announced today that, as a 
public service, they are co-sponsorins.; the sale of 
a documentary book on the recent conflict in the 
Middle East. The book, titled Lightning Out Of 
Israel, is a release from the Associated Press. 

The book is the first of the hard back books on 
the Middle East war. It is big, colorful, and has 
more than one hundred photos, about a third in 
full color, in its IfiO patjes. It tells the full st<»ry 
of the sL\-day war and the »'vents leading U|) to it 
— not just in terms of military movfm«-nts and air 
strikes, hut through the »\ves of men and women 
actually involved as fighters and civilians. 

It tells the complete story of an event whose 
dimensions and details and human ingredients are 
still unfolding. It will view the whirlwind war 
through the eyes of individual Jews and Arabs. 

It tells that still untold story, hour by hour, a- 

gainst the backdrop of history, of the full mili- 
tary story of the lightning war that stunned 
Arabs ever>"\vhei% and caused Jews to be reoog- 
niz«'d as a respet-ted power. It tells this story in 
terms of broad strategy, specific tactics, the hum- 
ble and the proud, the heroes and the cowards. 

Lightning Out Of Israel has been prepared by 
the same team that produced The Torch Is 
Passed, AP's best seller about the Kennedy assas- 
sination. Like that compelling talc, the new book 
is structured as a novel with th«^ immediacy of to- 
day's news flashes. 

The book will go on sale in the Student Union 
Bookstore this week at the minimal cost of $2.00. 
The cost can be so minimal lor this hard-cover 
volume because of the nature of this public 
service project. 

Only a limited supply of books have been 

Emperors New Clofhes 
Performed In Bartlett 

By "Statesman" Reviewer 

After a shoe-string experiment last summer, the University of 
Massachu.sctts Summer Repertory Theatre seems to have decided, 
with the recent production of "The F:mperor's New Clothes" that a 
children's show can pay its way. It should become a permanent 
feature. The larse audiences certainly show the need, indeed the 
starvation, of area youngsters for live entertainment. 

This production, adapted and staged by Lawrence J. Wilker, had 
fronl the adult's point of view, pep, pace and polish. But was it 
children's theatre? True, the "E:mperor's New Clothes" is ii child- 
ren's story, and this dramatization, by Rosemary Musil. is certainly 
preferable to that written by Charlotte Chorponnim,'. But if it was 
aimed at the upper elementary age ijroup, then the story w;is old 
hat, and lacked tension and clima.x; if pitched to lower elementary 
ages, then the plot was muddled, and the lanpuaue positively ridicu- 
lous. Some examples arc: "bethoui,'ht my.self; " "clamped in irons;" 
"party to this folly." A noticeable restlessness prevailed during scenes 
played in this "lanKuage," with mothers all aiound mo sternly shush- 
ing their children. An exception came when the Emperor (Pat Frenil 
tried on his invisible clothes. The vocabulary suddenly became real, 
and with it the chaiacters too. What actor can be sincere while 
mouthing such iiseudo-medieval jargon?

Editorial Comment 

Are You Capable? 

Should the Summer Student Executive Council be recognized 
as the student governing body for the summer? 

This is a question which will face the Student Senate in the Fall 
and it may be resolved into another: are summer students capable 
of governing themselves? 

The experience of this summer would seem to indicate tliat the 
answer to both of these questions should be no. The idea behind stu- 
dent self-government is that students are adults and as adults have 
a claim to be heard in the governing councils of the University. 

But the students on the campus this summer have shown them- 
selves to be incapable of governing their lives in a manner which is 
to be expected of the adults which they claim to be. Is there any 
reason, therefore, wliy they be allowed to have an elected body to 
govern their affairs as students? 

The SSEC recently complained to Mr. William Lambert, Uni- 
versity landscape architect, about the lack of proper lighting in the 
"F" parking lot. But to whom is Mr. Lambert to complain about the 
pie sty into which the students have turned "F" lot? Or to whom 
is he to complain about the malicious destruction of University pro- 
perty which daily is recorded in his office? 

The examples of student childishness are too numerous to multi- 
piy. The warped and perverted scrawlings Which one finds in any of 
the lavatories on campus; the failure of dorm residents to consider 
neighbors when playing radios or phonographs; the pig sties into 
which the elevators and lounges in Southwest have been turned; all 
these serve as daily reminders of the population of little boys and 
Httle girls which has descended on the campus this summer. 

UMass summer students are children who have not learned 
elementary lessons of self-discipline or proper behaviour. 

To ail of which comes the reply: not me. The story has been 
told hundreds of times of how all the evils are the result of a small 
minority. But the small minority only exists because they are 
tolerated by the unwashed majority — the unwashed majority that 
does not have any concern for this community. 

And since this is the student body from which the SSEC is 
chosen, can we exp)ect the members to be able to act as a governing 
body? The answer is no — the SSEC is a holding company for play- 
boys and bunnies who seem to mirror their constituencies in every 
way. This is why the Council is successful in holding parties and 
unsuccessful at everything else. 

The time has come for more responsible student organizations 
to bring this farce to a halt -to re-think the entire problem of sum- 
mer student government. 


REVIEW . . . 

(Continued from Page 1) 

Another delightful moment 
came at the end of Act 1, with 
VioJet (Sarah Harris) singing 
"I Wish I Were Queen." 

" ice cream every day 

and you don't have to pay." 

Every child can identify with 
that idea, and Miss Harris's per- 
formance Wcis a gem in every 
way. With great economy of 
movement, and perfect diction, 
she created a genuinely funny 
villain's daughter. The Empress 
(Kendall March) was also un- 
derstood, and very lovely to 
look at. I mention diction espe- 
cially, because so much of what 
the Villain (Peter Spar) and the 
Con-man (Bill McNulty) said, 
was gabbled and quite lost on 
the children. 

Perhaps this "speed-talk" was 
connected with the director's 
wish for pace. Pace has some- 
times to be sacrificed in a child- 
ren's show, to the needs of total 
intelligibility and absolute sin- 
cerity. Adults do not go to 
children's shows to be entar- 
tained. They derive their enter- 
tainment from their children's 
involvement. Involved children 
do not need to be shushed. 

"The Emperor's New Clothes" 
was a pleasant enough ninety 
minutes. The director had a 
great deal of talent available, 
including his own, which is con- 
siderable. What he needed, how- 
ever, was a clearer idea of 
whom ho wished to reach.

Baltimore Colts, riding the pass- 
ing of Johnny Unitas, whipped 
the Boston Patriots 33-3 Sunday 
giving the National Football 
League its first exhibition vic- 
tory over the American League. 

The triumph evened the 16- 
game preseason series between 
the leagues at one game each. 
Denver got the AFL off to a 
winning start Aug. 5 with a 13-7 
victory over the Detroit Lions. 

The Colts, with Unitas hitting 
four key passes, had a 10-3 early 
lead in the second quarter, then, 
with 2:33 left in the half, the 
Patriots had the ball on their 12 
yard line. 

Jon Morris' center snap went 
beyond the end line for an auto- 
matic safety. 

Baltimore then got the ball 
back on a punt and Unitas hit 
rookie Ray Perkins with a 19- 
yard pass, then handed off to 
another rookie. Jim Detwiler. 
who raced up the middle for a 
20-yard touchdown. That gave 
the Colt nine points within 39 
seconds and a 19-3 halftime lead. 

The Colts, enroute to winning 
their 13th straight exhibition 
game, took a 7-0 lead in the first 

quarter as Unitas hit on passes 
to Willie Richardson, Tom Matte 
and John Mackey. Matte ran the 
last four yards for the touch- 

Boston cut the score to 7-3 in 
Gino Cappollettis .37-yard field 
goal on the second play of the 
second quarter, but the Colts off- 
set that with Lou Michaels' 26- 
yard field goal three minutes

Special System Expands 
UM Computer Use 


•Statesman' Reporter 

A group from the University 
Research Computing Center, 
Dr. Caxton Foster, Mr. Robert 
Hambleton, and Mr. David W. 
Stemple, have developed a tele- 
typewriter system that wiU per- 
mit remote multiple access to 
the University's CDC 3600 com- 
puter. It is expected that the 
system wUl be ready for use 
by the beginning of the fall 

The teletypewriter system is 
known as UMASS (Unlbnited 
Machine Access from Scattered 
Sites). The teletypewriters are 
connected by telephone line to 
the computer. When the sys- 
tem is in operation, the user 
will type an identification num- 
ber on his teletypewriter and 
the name of the computer lan- 
guage he will be using. Then he 
will type the problem if or the 
computer to act on. The answer 

will be printed at the same tele- 

It is expected that ten public 
teletypewriters will be installed 
in ten classroom buildings. 
There will hs one unit in each 
of the following buildings: 
Machmer, Goessman, Has- 
brouck, Business Administra- 
tion, Main Engineering, New 
Engineering, Draper, Education, 
and Morrill Science Center. The 
stations will be open for use 
approximately eight hours a 
day. They will be open to both 
faculty and students, but the 
one-half hour time intervals 
must be reserved in advance 
with the various departments in 
the above buildings. 

Units are also being install- 
ed in the Research Computing 
Center for use by Computer 
Science 121 students, and fac- 
ulty and students working on 
unsupported research projects. 

The fUnaJ art event of this 
year's University of Massachu- 
setts summer arts festival will 
be two exhibits from Jaipan 
running through Aug. 26 at the 
UMass Student Union. 

"iModem Decorative Arts of 
Japan" is an exhibit that in- 
cludes ceramics, metalware, lac- 
quer-dyed ifabrics and wooden 
work. "Gakkl, Musical Instru- 
ments Of Japan" is an exhibit 
ol 17 wind, string and percus- 
sion instruments accompanied 
by tapes of their music. 

The decorative arts collection 
shows contemporary examples 
of ancient Japanese techniques 
and demonstrates an im|M>rtant 
Japanese artistic concept: that 
there has been little differentia- 
tion in Japan between fine arts 
and handicrafts. Japanese tra- 
ditionally consider an everyday 
article sls worthy of artistic ef- 
fort as a painting. 

The exhibit is sponsored by 
three Japanese groups, the 
Japan Society of New York, the 
Decorative Arts Association of 
Tokyo and the Kokusai Bunka 

The Musical instnmi"nt exhi- 
bition is sponsored by the same 
three Japanese groups and is 
circulating in the UJS. under 
the auspices of the American

Council Provides For 
Anti-War Film Showing 

by PAT PETOW, 'Statesman' Editor 

Three muvies, two of which have parts specifically condemning 
the War in Vietnam and all of which oppose war generally, are being 
brought to the campus by a Vietnam "resistance" movement. The 
Summer Student Executive Council is sponsoring the room on two 
evenings for the Vietnam Summer program. 

Not too long ago the SSEC "sponsored « room" for a self-an- 
nounced Presidential candidate. The Council debated that motion 
and vot<'d favorably on It while the individual was present. But then 
after he left, the matter was reconsidered and wording was changed. 

President Dave Bartholomew explained all this to the Vietnam 
Summer representative who was asked by sc\eral members to leave 
the room before the debate. 

After the doors were securely barred, the lK>dy heard Paul Gibbs 
call the Vietnam Summer movement un-American and heard him 
repeat allegations of Communist-influence. 

Burt Freedman, answering Gibbs, ol>je<te<l to calling opposition 
of the War as un-American. 

In the first round of debate, Dave Olark in favor of showing the 
movies told the summer government, "I think we're mature enough 
to form our own opinions." 

The principal motion passed 18-10, and then in one of rare points 
of parliamentary order Freedman Insisted on a vote being taken on 
the question of which movie (») to show. 

All three will be shown next week it was decided: Eyewitness In 
North Vietnam; Good Thnes, Wonderful Times; and Sons and 

Gambling, drinking, and dancing will highlight the 
Summer Student Executive Council's supreme effort, Las 
Vegas Nite, Saturday, August 19, in the Student Union 

The crystal ball of the 
Casino Royal gambling hall 
will include chuck-aluck, 
roulette, wheel of fortune, 
craps, poker and black jack. 
The Casino will utilize gam- 
bling kits from "Harold's" 
in Las Vegas. Waitresses, 
bartenders, bouncers, and 
cashiers will be dressed in 
authentic casino costumes. 

Rewards for the success- 
ful gambler will be provided 
by an auction at the end of 
the evening, with prizes 
donated by local merchants. 

Items include five dinners 
for two, clothes, gift certi- 
ficates, a pole lamp, toilet 
articles, ten free strings of 
bowling, sunglasses, records, 
coffee, a tablecloth and wal- 
lets. The grand prize is a 

radio donated by the council. 

One council member said 
that, "no one need fear from 
such a tantalizing menu, 
that even the drake cannot 
equal. The selection in- 
cludes : Tremendous Tim

witz's Grinder. Drinks range 
in price from ten to fifteen 

The council has stated 
that it will donate all pro-

'you can't expect students to do much else except study." 

High School Teacher Here For Summer 

by PAT PETOW, 'Statesman' Editor 

(This article is the second In a series based on interviews with visiting faculty and new UMass faculty 

Several of the visiting professors this summer come from foreign Institutions. But one instructor 
from Springfield probably has the most interesting affiliation. Alan C. Dickinson, who Is teaching 
General Chemistry, comes from Springfield Technical High School. 

"I always had It In mind to be a high school teacher," he explained. Dickinson told how he went to 
Indiana University planning to get a master's degree but came out with a Ph.D. 

While teaching at Technical High for two years, he has taught at American International College 
during a summer. At Indiana, Dickinson was a teaching assistant. 

The chemistry instructor described his position as a high school teacher moonlighting on campus 
as "fairly common" at Technical. Other teachers there, he said, teach at colleges at night and during 

About the UMass summer school curriculum, Dickinson commented: "The more concentrated It 
jfcts the more difficult it gets for both student and teacher." He pointed out, however, that the short 
time period has definite benefits . " ••-..- .- -• ». 

At AIC, the terms were only 
four weeks, he said. 

Although Dickinson said he 
didn't know whether or not he 
would go here if he were enter- 
ing graduate school, he said the 
UMass grad school seems to be 
very good. The deciding factor 
for chemistry graduate students, 
he explained, is the types of 
study possible — which is some- 
times dependent on the Institu- 
tion's physical equipment. 

Dickinson said he was happy 
at Indiana because he could 
work In solid state physical 

In the course of the interview, 
he decribed the students here as 
an "excellent group"— the most 
receptive he's encountered. 

Without definite plans for the 
future, the visiting professor ex- 
pressed the thought that he 
probably would go into college 
teaching fulltime. At the same 
time, he spoke enthusiastically of ffTATBSMAN Photo by John K.iiy

UM LD. Policy Makes No Sense 

Althoug-h the University has begun a plan of a four-year, "permanent" i.d., upper- 
class students were still charged $1 on their fall fee bills for an i.d. Under the new plan, 
a student may keep the i.d. issued to him as a freshman for the rest of his college ca- 
reer. Each year validation stickers or stamping processes will renew the plastic card. 

Under the old system, students received a new i.d. each year and were charged $1 
a year for it. 

Now if a student wants a new identification card, he can get it — by paying a $2 
fee. Also if he loses his i.d., it will cost him $2 for another. 

Why must students continue to pay their $1 a year fee? According to William H. 
Richards, an assistant dean of men, who is in charge of i.d.'s for the summer the "ideal" 
situation would be to charge a fee freshman year and not repeat it. He agreed that if 
less students are issued i.d.'s each year, the costs of the operation should decrease. But 
Mr. Richards was unable to say when students might not have to pay their yearly fee. 

He pointed out that last year the office ran a deficit and money is needed. So the 
students are charged a fee. 

(University staff members, incidentally pay about $1.25 for their i.d.'s when they 
are issued and renew them about every four years. Staff members do not pay a yearly 
fee to cover overhead costs of running the office.) 

The increased i.d. fee — for that is what the new plan entails — is just another exam- 
ple of the University of Massachusetts, keeping its tuition constant and hiking other 

Those who pay the bills know they are paying more. 

But the essential conflict in this situation is not that the University needs money 
and must charge the students to get it; the qestion at hand is how should the cost of i.d. 
cards be divided. Should all students (and staff) bear an equal share of the cost of this 
service ? 

The answer seems quite simple. Everybody who gets an i.d. should pay only for that 
i.d. and all the charges associated with it. Those who desire a new or "vanity" i.d. eadi 
year should pay for it. 

At the present time, a student who decides to keep his freshman i.d. for four years 
will still pay $1 per year. Does his i.d. cost $4? 

There should be an overall decrease in the cost of i.d.'s — ^it should be possible to have 
a four year i.d. for no more than $1 or to have new i.d.'s for four years for less than $7. 

But an even cheaper method of id.'s might be employed here! According to a highly- 
reliable administrative source, the Polaroid company has an identification card process 
costing $2,400 for the initial camera investment and about 4^ apiece for each card. Each 
year about 3,000 freshmen enter. They pay $ 1 each . . . upperclassmen pay a $1 . . . some 
upperclassmen pay another $2 It doesn't make sense 


Vegas Nite Product of Devoted Few 

The major reason for the failure of the been the lack of spirit shown by the sum- 
Summer Student Executive Council to f ul- mer student body and reflected in the mem- 
fill its responsibilities this summer has bers of the Council. 

But even in the face of 
this apathy, there are still 
members of the Council who 
have not given up their ef- 
forts to represent student 
interests and make summer 
school a more enjoyable ex- 

It is this minority of the 
Council which has been vig- 
orously carrying forward 
the effort to stage one ma- 
jor social event on campus 
this summer. 

Their energies have been 
directed into sponsoring Las 
Vegas Nite — a diversified 
evening of fun and enter- 
tainment which promises 
something for every taste 
on campus. 

The planning of Las Ve- 
gas Nite has been a major 
task. There have been many 
trying jobs which have had 
to be done in order to make 
the evening a success. These 
include the solicitation of lo- 
cal merchants for prizes to 
be auctioned off at the end 
of the evening; trips to 
Springfield to examine and 

rent equipment; and the lay- 
ing out of the Student Union 
Ballroom as a replica of a 
real casino. These are only a 
few of the many jobs which 
have had to be done and 
these do not include the 
walking, the lifting, the 
writing, and the sweating 
which are involved in run- 
ning any social event 

The work involved in 
planning this event, in short, 
has been a heavy and unre- 
warding one. It has been es- 
pecially heavy because the 
work has been shouldered by 
a small minority of the 
Council — a small minority 
which is concerned and 
which had not allowed the 
apathy of their fellow mem- 
bers to engulf the entire 

These people have done 
their job well. The planning 
has been carried through 
very carefully and the eve- 
ning promises to be exciting 
and successful — but success- 
ful only if the students for 
whom it was planned show 

There is no reason why 
the students of this campus 
should not attend this event. 
The price is minimal and 
could easily involve a high 
return because of the nu- 
merous prizes which stu- 
dents will have the opportu- 
nity to bid on at the end of 
the evening. 

But regardless of the su. 
cess or failure of the eve- 
ning, those few members of 
the Council who have con- 
tributed more than their 
fair s'hare of time and effort 
deserve the recognition of 
their fellow students.

Campus Comment 

New Blood Challenges 
Administrative Apathy 

To the Editor: 

For close to four and a half years now we have been reading in 
the campus newspaper various and sundry gripes by students, faculty 
and administrators against UMass. The complaints range from cur- 
fews to cof>s to coke machines, and most of the time they are justifi- 
ed. The University of Massachusetts student today is laboring under 
two fundamental burdens: an expanding University for which he 
must experience ^'le academic growing pains, and the subsequent ad- 
ministrative s-.diu for which he must also suffer. 

A case for the latter is the foul-up of recent student pay checks. A 
significant number of students last month were not paid their ;nonth- 
ly wages. This was, admitted the powers that be, their oversight. 
They felt obligated — a rare phenomenon — to rush through several 
short term loans to those students in dire Anancial need. Unfortur- 
nately, owing to the exodus of all administrative offices to the new 
Whitmore Hall, these checks took up to a week to finish processing. 
To many of us this meant a week of starvation. Finally however, we 
wero guaranteed the loan checks on a particular Friday. Came Friday 
and. . . .you guessed it — no checks. Panic ensued; weekend ahead and 
flat broke. 

It was then that we were referred to Mr. Donald J. Pelkey. Mr. 
Pelkey is a comparatively new member of the Treasurer's Office staff, 
and sofmewhat of a phenomenon himself. That is to say, he gives a 
damn. After hearing our pleas, Mr. Pelkey made imploring phone 
caUs, trips to Whitmore Hall in a driving rain, and inconvenienced 
himself greatly to deliver the checks that, "couldn't be had till Mon- 
day," in our hands, late Friday afternoon. 

As if this wasn't enough, after the loans were repaid to the Treas- 
urer's Office, a personal note, with a receipt, arrived in our mail say- 
ing, "Thank you, D. J. Pelkey." 

It makes us wonder what makes the difference between the Don- 
ald Pelkeys on the administrative staff and the chemnel-happy bu- 
reaucrats that so easily say, "Sorry, haven't the time today," or, 
"You'll have to wait till. . .", or "Get this signed by. . ."—you know 
the type. 

There are other "good guys" on the staff, but not many. They're 
bucking the tide, and probably won't last — all we can do is hope.

Transfer Student 
Defends Umass 

Dear E^ditor: 

I was shocked and amazed to 
read your editorial "^Are You 
CapaMie" (Summer Statesman 
Aug. 14, 1967). It seems ob- 
vious to me that you know lit- 
tle of the goings-on at other 
colleges. Before transtorring to 
UM, I attended Dean Jr College 
in Franklin, Mass. Dean is a 
small school of about 960 stu- 
dents. There was so much gross 
misbehavior and vandelism that 
the tuition dplus room & board) 
had to be increased $200 just to 
pay for the damajges. There 
N^ill be a suocessdve $200 in- 
ci^ease each year until the limit 
of $3000 is reached, making 
Dean one of the most expensive 
junior colleges in the country. 

I was reildeved and overjoyed 
to find that, at UM, it would 
no longer be necessary for me 
to stand guard behind my door 
each nd^ht in order to apipre-

I think the students at UM 
are the most mature bunch of 
people I have ever met. 

In regard to your "small 
mmority" theory, I did a sur- 
vey project while at Dean which 
showed that nearly every stu- 
dent was in this "small minor- 
ity" for, on9 reason or another, 
and I suspect that the same 
thing is true at UM. No student 
intends to be a "good little boy" 
or "good little girl" so you 
might as well accept this fact 
and not strive for the impos- 
sible. When I thiink back on the 
two years of delinquency I had 
to live with at Dean, I would 
bo only too haippy to overlook 
the relativr-ly minor transgres- 
sions of the students at UM. 
You don't know how fortunate 
you are!

Two Continents Rave Over Yardbirds 


'Colleg^ian' Sports Editor* 

Perched on a stage, in front of 
an orange-lighted back-drop, the 
four of them were propedling fa- 
miliar itiythms through $6,000 
worth of apparatus — Fender gui- 
tars, drums, harmonicas, tambo- 
rines and hopped-up amplifiers. 

Before them, 
several hun - 
dred hip young 
people did the 
JCT-k, the frog, 
the monkey 
and more 
formless gyra- 
tions to the 
electron ic 
sounds that thundered from the 
speakere. TTie term "wall of 
sound" seemed inappropriate. It 
was more like a "universe of 
sound" to the entranced dancers. 

When the number "Heart Full 
of Soul" ended, the large group 
near the stage was so closely 
packed that hands had to be lift- 
ed high to af^laud. Screams 
drowned out the hand-clai^lng. 
But then, the Yardbirds are used 
to such adulation. 

As one of the British groups 
that followed the Beatles' sound 
wave to a lofty position in Amer- 
ican pop music, the Yardbirds 
rose f rotn a combo making $60 a 
nig^ht for shaking a cliib in Rich- 

mond, Eng., 1.0 an attraction 
worth a few thousand dollars in 
a place called Holyoke, Mass. 

They appeared last weekend in 
the ballroom at Mountain Park, 
after having played the night be- 
fore in Salem, fiM. Next they 
would hit the Village Theater in 
New York, then Pennsylvania 
and finally Florida. 

Their prestige is secure. They 
have had four million selling re- 
cords and five albums. They have 
appeared on the Ed Sullivan 

But as the Yardbirds relaxed 
in a dingy storeroom during the 
intermission, they seemed playful 
and friendly, if a trifle weary 
from the grind of their Ameri- 
can tour. 

Jimmy Page, 23, the lead gui- 
tar player, and Jim McCarty, 24, 
the drummer, took seats next to 
two girls. Page, a cheerful type 
with a bush of Jet-black hair. 
Joined the Yardbirds a few 
months ago when Eric Clapton 
left to play lead guitar with the 

McCarty, a lean fellow whose 
brown hair wasn't quite as long 
as Page's, talked with the girls 
and the group's road manager, 
Brian Conliffe. Chris Dreja, 20, 
the bass guitarist and the tallest 
but youngest of the quaiiet, 
withdrew to the shadows of the 





room where chairs and boxes 
were piled. 

The group's spokesman was 
Keith Relf, 24, the lead singer 
who occasionally contributes on 
harmonica or tambourine. Relf, 
whose blond hair drooped well 
over his ears, was soft - spoken 
but articulate. He wore a gold 
medallion around his neck and 
like the others, he wore mocca- 
sins, tight denim pants and a 
thick, gold-embroidered pullover. 

Compared to that of other 
English groups, their garb is con- 
sidered conservative. Page said. 
.\nd Relf asked somewhat incre- 
dulously, "Does it seem strange 
to you?" 

"There's a group in England 
called Johns Children, that play 
stark naked," he said. "They 
have to watch what clubs they 
play." The others diuckled. 

Relf said they enjoyed their 
amplifier-smashing scene in the 
film, "Blow Up," because they 
were working under the direction 
of Michaelangelo Antonioni. 

Relf is a graduate of Kingston 
Col. He said the group started a- 
bout five years ago in the Rich- 
mond - Kingston area on the 
Thames Rv., 20 miles south of 
London. Their first appearances 
were at local clubs. "We got a-

bout $60 for the first two or

Relf can»e up with the name 
"Yardbirds" from a book on the 
American South. "It was some- 
thing like 'He was nothing but a 
yardbiid." " he said. He said that 
the word has a "very bluesy" 
connotation and that the name 
reflected the fact that the Yard- 
birds originated as a strictly 
blues group. 

They aren't Just singing the 
blues anymore, however. "We've 
grown up and we just don't feel 
so short-minded anymore," Relf 
said. On their present tour, the 
Yardbirds haven't seen much 
more of America than its hotels 
and dancing teenagers, he said. 
Their favorite American groups 
are the Supremes, Four Tops and 
others of the Detroit mold. But 
Relf said that, compared to those 
of Europe, the dancing styles he 
saw in America were "pretty 

Their next album, he said, will 
be released "when we get back 
to England in a fortnight." 

The Yardbirds' next single ap- 
parently will have philosophic 
overtones. Relf said that the re- 
cord, called "Little Red Mon- 
key," will be about "a schizo- 
phrenic Chinese Communist who 
shows out among the capitalist 
people at a record hop." Page 
addad, "so they take away his 
driver's license so he can't go to 
record hops. So he Joins a rock 
'n' roll group." 

As for the Beatles, Relf said 

with a touch of reverence, "They 
are something I dream about. 
They're absolutely apart from 
other people. They're like gods. 
They're comi>osed of ectoplasm." 

In regard to the Beatles' effect 
on other pop groups, he said, "I 
see them as birds who settled 
down on a colony and all the 
other birds joine<l them. God 
knows where they'll end." 

Among other English groups. 
Relf favors the Procul Harum 
but as for the Dave Clark Five, 
he said. "I don't rate them at 

He said that terms such as 
"Liverpool sound" and ".Man- 
chester sound" are inappropriate 
in discussions of current British 
groups. "Geogrophics has n4»thing 
tu do with it. It did before," he 

"Talk to Chris for awhile," he 
said. Dreja, the withdrawn bass 
player, held two hot dogs covered 
with mustard. He didn't have 
much more to say than that they 
tiy to "simulate" the Beatles, 
that dancing styles change all 
the time, that he hadn't heard 
the Animals in about a year and 
that his hobby is photography.

Rocketing Red Barons... 

Fury's Flop As Baron's Bomb 


The rocketing Red Barons, led by Rich Rizzo and Don West, ended Sergeant 
Fury's domination of the intramural Softball league. Their come from behind vic- 
tory provided the excitment in this startling upset. 


In the first inning, the Furies 
made their customary quick 
start by picking up three funs 
on a combination of singles and 
infield errors. The Red Barons 
nervous infield finally united 
behind moundsman Don West 
to end the scoring spree. 

The Red Barons broke into 
the score column in the third 
inning. After Rizzo had bunted 
safely and stolen second, ho was 
driven in by Freitos hit to left. 

Continuing their winning 
ways, Snoop ies boys broke the 
«ame op>en with a big fifth in- 

ning. With two outs, singles by 
Rizzo, O'Shey and Freitos pro- 
vided another run. Helping him- 
self to his second win of the 
week, West singled in the tying 
run. With runners on first and 
third, Ken DeRouk hit a solid 
double to right center to make 
the score 5-3. D'Agostino flyed 
to shallow left to end the rally. 
The Banons added their final 
run in the sixth inning via PhiJ 
Katz's solo home run blast. 

Then, in the final inning of 
play, the Screaming Comman- 
dos started to fight back. With 

one away, the tiring Don West 
yielded back to back singles. 
But, the determined Barons 
countered with a flawless de- 
fense. A routine fly to third 
gave the second out. The game 
and the Furies winning streak 
ended on Jim Whity's spectac- 
ular diving catch of a foul ball. 

The Red Barons, by far the 
hottest team in the league, are 
rapidly becoming an adds on 
favorite to win the league. With 
their power hitting and adroit 
fielding, Snoopies Boys have 
move into contention.

Arrest / Converge Program 
Concludes With Beaux-Arts Quartet 

The internationally-acclaimed Beaux- Arts String Quartet will present an all-Mozart program at Its 
UMass summer arts program concert Tuesday, Aug. 22 at 8 p.m. in the Student Union. 

A rehearsal at 3:30 in the Student Union on the afternoon of the concert is open to the public with- 
out cliarge. Tickets for concert are available at the Student Union Ticket Office located at the rear 
of Bartlett Hall or at the door before the performance. 





Leon Harris To Lecture 

The Beaux-Arts String Quartet won the Walter 
W. Naumburg Foundation's first Chamber Music 
Award last season. As part of the $20,000 appro- 
priated for the Award, the largest prize ever 
given by a music competition, the Quartet was 
presented in the spring of 1966 at Town Hall in 
New York City, and won unusual public and cri- 
tical plaudits. 

Under the sponsorship of the Foundation, the 
Beaux-Arts String Quartet will again appear at 
Town Hall this coming fall and spring. 

The Quartet, whose members are Charles Ll- 
bove and Stephen Clapp, violins; John Graham, 
viola and Bruce Rogers, cello, has won unanimous 
acclaim throughout the United States, Europe and 
the Far East, where in 1964, the grroup appeared 
as the only American r^resentative at the Osaka 
International Festival in Japan. 

The Japan Times reported: "Those who were 
privileged to hear this American ensemble last 
Tuesday evening in Hibaya Hall will long cherish 
the supremely musicianly purpose of this single 

During the 1966 season, the Beaux-Arts String 
Quartet was engaged for the 'third time as the 
resident quartet at the Festival of Two Worlds, 
Spoleto, Italy, and was also presented at concerts 
in such European music capitals as Colognie, Brus- 
sels, Paris, Salzburg, Berlin and Stuttgart. 

Critical and public success again marked this 
tour, and the French newspaper Le Monde ob- 
served: "The Quartet played with passionate and 
tumultuous spirit." 

Whether it is heard in concerts at home or 
abroad, whether it is heard on television or 
through its many recordings, the Beau-Arts 
String Quartet amply justifies its reputation, as 
reported by the New York Times, as a Quartet of 
"utmost delicacy, finesse and interpretative sensi- 

New York Times music critic Harold C. Schon- 
berg, reviewing a concert by the group earlier this 
year, said: "The four members of the Beaux- Arts 
String Quartet . . . are not only virtuoso players, 
but they seem to have a European and even a ro- 
mantic view toward quartet playing as well". 

Former Harvard Umpoon Writer 

Speaks on "Political Wit" Tonight First Med School Building Bought 

Author, lecturer and TV per- 
sonality Leon Harris wUa talk 
on "The Fine Art of PoHtical 
Wit" in the University of Mass- 
achusetts Student Union Ball- 
room at 8 p.m. [Monday, Aug. 21. 

The lecture, final one in this 
season's UMass summer arts 
program, is open to 'the public 
without charge. 

Harris combines a capacity 
for humor with a backg^round 
in history. He views the politi- 
cal joke as a unique insight in- 
to history and has made it his 
specialty. "Wit and humor are 
sometimes as effective in mak- 
ing history as the implements 
of war," he has noted. 

He is the author of the wide- 
ly-acclaimed "The Fine Art of 
Political Wit," a carefully-re- 
searched exploration of the way 
wit and humor have shaped 
political careers from Sheridan, 
DisraeU and Lincoln through 

Churchill, Kennedy and the 
leaders of the ipresent. 

Gathering material for tiis 
Ixwk, Harris has traveled to 
France and England and tms 
covered the entire United States. 
He has interviewed such politi- 
cal notables as President Ljrn- 
don B. Johnson, Vice-President 
Hubert Humphrey, the late Ad- 
lai Stevenson, British Prime 
Minister Harold Wilson and 
former British Prime Minister 
Harold Macmillan. 

Harris began ills literary ca- 
reer on the Harvard Lampoon. 

After graduating from Har- 
vard, Harris moved to Texas 
as executive vice president of 
a Dallas department store. Ac- 
tive in Dallas cultural affairs, 
he has also written several 
children's books, including "The 
Night before Christmas, In Tex-

ture Robbery," and "Young

UMass trustees Monday voted 
approval of preliminary plans 
for the University's Worcester 
Med School, and approved pur- 
chase of several parcels of land 
in Amherst. 

Approval of plans for the $46 
million first phase of the UM 
Med School paves the way for 
construction of the complex. ITie 
school will be built on 125 acres 
in the Belmont St.-Lake Ave. 
area of Worcester starting next 
year, and is scheduled to open in 
1970. UM officials say the com- 
plex will eventually occupy 300 
acres in Worcester. 

Trustees approved purchase of 
the Shaw building at the site, 
owned by Pinney Realty Corp.. 
at a cost of $500,000. The vote 
was the first official administra- 
tive action acquiring land from 
private sources at the Worcester 

The building, containing 44.000 
sq. ft., i* assessed at $256,000.

Control Parking Begins in Fail 

(Reprinted from the Greenfield Recorder and the Amherst Record) 
A control parking system, to be begun this September, will "put an end to the 
traffic and parking problems, and make the campus a lot safer for pedestrian stu- 
dents," according to William Lambert, UM planning engineer. 

Fall plans caU for setting up 
six entrance-exit points around 
campus, wlaiah will lead to park- 
ing areas only in that area. 
Many of the roads now open to 
traffic will be closed. These in- 
clude Stockbridge Road, from 
the old math building to Marsh- 
all Hall, most of Ellis Drive, and 
Lincoln Ave, froan Whitmore 
Hall to Ellis Drive. 

Shutdown of traffic will force 
cars to enter and leave campus 
from the same checkpoint. Sec- 
urity personnel will be stationed 
in booths to provide information 
to visitors. 

Lambert explained that the six 
entrance points and the seven 
control eireas, in addition to the 
shutting down of several roads 
will emphasize radical ti>arldng 
facilities outside the perimeter 
of the main camipus. 

SSEC Debates On 
Charity Appropriation 

by PAT PETOW, 'Statesman' Editor 

A total $100 donation to charity was given ap- 
proval by the Summer Student Executive Council 
Tuesday but the motion was reconsidered and will 
be taken up at the next meeting for final action. 

The waiting period will permit the student gov- 
ernment to have a more exact tally of Las Vegas 
Nite proceeds as well as providing an opportunity 
to appropriate money for other purposes before 
maldiig the charity donation. 

The motion which will be considered is for the 
Council to add whatever amount is needed to the 
amount of the proceeds of Las Vegas Nite so 
that the two sums total $100. 

EarHier the Council decided to donate all the 
profits from Las Vegas Nite to charity — allowing 
the charity to be selected by the Social Committee, 
chaired by Carole Robinson, whidh ran the social 
event. But if funds, as proposed, are also voted 
out of the SSEC general fund, the entire Council 
will have a say in choosing the charity. 

Some of the debate at this week's meeting cen- 
tered on which charity to aid. Mrs. Robinson Indi- 
cated, for her committee, that she favored split- 
ting the money between the children's heart fund 
and the class for mentally retarded children in 
North Amherst. 

The SSEC last year donated about $200, from 
its generad fund (since there was no profit on Las 
Vegas Nite) to the mentally retarded class. But 
Mrs. RoWnson pointed out to the Council the in- 
terest of patrons of Las Vegas Nite in the heart 
fund. (Local merchants patronized the affair by 
providing gifts for its play-money auction.) 

Another matter discussed in the defbate was 
whether next year's summer government would be 
cut back in the amount of money given to it for 
appropriations if the SSEC were to donate part of 
its funds to charity this summer. 

One Councilor questioned whether SiSEC might 
be cut back anyway Lf the body simply left the 
money in Its treasury unused. Leftover funds in 
the SSE:c account would be carried forward to 
the 1968 summer program as a whole. 

Although he was unable to answer either ques- 
tion, the RSO business manager, Gerald F. Scan- 
Ion, toQd the Council that he personally still fa- 
vored o $1,000 treasury for the summer govern- 
ment but that the decision would be up to the 

summer program council formed in the spring 
of 1968. 

Members of the 1967 SSEC would be if possible 
asked to sit on the summer program council. 

The summer program council assesses a tax 
for the student body from which it budgets stu- 
dent activities, including the student government 
and the newspajier and the arts program. 

Scankm urged the SSEC finance committee to 
write out a tentative budget for operation in 1968 
for the summer program fM>uncii'8 study. 

In other financial action, on a motion of C^oun- 
cikM- Ken Kaplan, the SSEC voted $100 for food 
for the Southwest summer day picnic scheduled 
for yesterday at Robin Farm. 

The affair has ibeen advertised at SW as a 
"free" picnic and, on the basis of its advertise- 
ment, more students requested tickets than were 

Original funds for the refreshments were con- 
tributed by the house councils of the SW area. 
Kaplan indicated that the houses had no money 

Each house was given $50 a semester out of 
the general summer program council's funds. 

Two pieces of legislation passed at the SSEC 
meeting provide for greater coordination between 
the summer government and the Student Senate. 

The Constitution Conunittee offered a motion 
that the Summer-Fall Coordination Committee be 
designated to present the SSEC constitution to the 
Senate and Board of Trustees for aj^roval. The 
motion also provided for reporting to the Senate 
all activities and recommendations of the SSEC. 

It as hoped that the Senate will be able to solve 
the summer telephone problem and it is expected 
that the Senate will seize on the passage of the 
open house policy this summer as grounds for 
one in the fall. 

The Council was also called upon to find out 
what sort of fall l.d.'B will be available for swing- 
shift freshmen and haw they will be Issued. That 
report is expected at the next meeting. 

The next meeting, the last SSEXZ! meeting for 
1967, has been rescheduled for Monday, August 28 
(at 7 p.m.) instead of Wednesday, August 30. 

Although the control parking 
will be operational in the Fail, 
Lambert said that it won't have 
the niceties right away. Niceties 
include road and cru-b markings, 
sig^ns and campus guide books to 
be: distributed at the check 
points to visitors. 

Lambert, a 195S UMass grad- 
uate, explained that parking pro- 
visions will be accorded the same 
way that they are now, but with 
one change. Now faculty and 
staff will be assigned specific 
lots along with students. Only a 
few people will be able to park 
anywhere on campus. 

Guards will take note of visi- 
tor's vehicles with an eye toward 
apprehending unauthorized peo- 
ple who continuadly try to pass 
themselves off as visitors. 

Lambert, also a member of 
the Ad-Hoc committee of park- 
ing, said that his committee has 
recommended har^ measiu*es 
for parking violators. In addition 
to the new .parking plans, a 1,000 
car garage is now in the plan- 

ning stage, and wiU help the 
parking situation gneatly. 

Lambert explained that much 
thought has been given to run- 
ning busses from large parking 
areas outside the campus. He 
also forsc»es busses shuttling 
back and forth to area towns tor 
faculty and staff. 

Bicycles will be allowed on 
campus, and Lambert feels that 
foot pat-hs, which are now being 
built 20 and 30 feet wide, will ac- 
commodate them as well as 

Lambert's theory for traffic 
circulation is built around the 
needs of the student. "If It 
wasn't for the students, the Uni- 
versity wouldn't be here," he 

However, even though he sub- 
scribes to the theories of stu- 
dent's rights, he stresses the fact 
that certain regulations will be 
strictly enforced in order to pro- 
vide for safety for the entire 
campus conxmunity. 

Beaux Art Quartet 
Climaxes Arts Pragrim 


The Beaux Arts String Quartet brought Arrest/Converge 1967, 
the summer arts pnogralm!, to a very enjoyable climax. 

The gnx>up played three quartets by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. 
As a unit the quartet plays extremely well, however, the individual 
members except for one visibly live and breathe the music that they 
are playing. 

The exception was the cellist, Bruce Rogers. He seemed some- 
what oblivious to the beauty and excitement of the music. His 
playing lacked the brilliance of his colleagues. 

Charles Libove, first violinist, showed truly great mastery of 
his instrument. His tones were sweet, clear and particularly suited 
to the music of Mozart. His performance outshone that of all the 
other members of the quartet. 

A pleasant addition to the ev^iing was Nina Lugovoy. She per- 
formed with three of the members in Mozart's Piano Quartet £ 
flat Major, K 993. 

Miss Lugovoy's technique was flawless, but unfortunately the 
piano lacked mellowness and sweetness, occasionally it seemed 
rather harsh. 

The Beaux Arts String Quartet has shown in this conceit the 
virtuosity that has won them critical acclaim in this country and in 
Europe. One can only hope (that they will be able to return in the 
coming year. 





Editorial Section 

Members Add Vigor to SSEC 

At UMass very few things just exist. Most things have a charter or formal rea- 
son for being. No one, for example, may give a public speech in the Student Union 
without a sptonsor (and this rule originates in the acts of the S. U. Governing Board, 
which SUG Board has a charter from the Board of Trustees, which Trustees were 
created by the General Court, etc.) 

Thus this summer, the Summer Student Executive Council has twice sponsored 
rooms in the S. U. for presentations. 

But the StSEC also has a sponsor, namely the Student Senate. The summer gov- 
ernment does not derive front Trustee recog^nition but from Student Senate recog- 
nition — the Student Senate of the I'niversity is empowered to recognize (or allow 
to continue) other Recognized Student Organizations (RSO). 

Additional, the SSEC is a part of the Summer Program from which it is funded. 

Naturally, there are groups in the process of becoming legitimate and there are 
groups which are semi-organized but which operate informally. 

This sort of sponsor-plan, generally, would seem to indicate good organization. 
Essentially* it is an impersonal manner of insuring perpetuation — just like the 
corporate form of business organization. 

Understandably, the Summer Council views its relationship with the Student 
Senate with certainly more a feeling of importance than the Senate would give it. 

In the preamble to its constitution, the Summer Council declares: "We . . . do 
hereby establish this constitution as the supreme law of our summer student 

But self-pride is not intrinsically wrong. 

One promising aspect of this summer's government is its attention to the matter 
of coordination with the Student Senate. The Summer Council is making an effort 
to have its work continue into this fall. 

Last summer, the Summer Council passed nearly the same resolution of report- 
ing itr actions and recommendations to the Student Senate. Because of the Senate's 
inaction, with little pressure on it to act, nothing came of the intention. 

The Student Senate, in its past legislative year, did not even formally ratify the 
SSEC constitution — although the President issued an Executive Order providing the 
same effect! temporarily. 

Thus at this stage the credit for year-round government belongs to the Summer 
Council. However, the Student Senate is very good at going through formalities - 
it remembered to issue that Executive Order. 

One lesson, in this connection, the Summer Council might take from the Student 
Senate is in formalities. The Suimmer Council needs a system of by-laws, that is a 
record of acts passed one year and binding for the future. For example, the Summer 
Council as mentioned above passed an act in 1966 creating a committee to work on 
coordination of summer and fall governments. 

That act seems as much in order at the present time as the act relating to the 
absences of members, which has been enforced this year. So it seems that the Summer 
Council has to decide what acts are in force and what acts are not. 

Speaking of formalities, the SSEC should remember that it has not amended its 
constitution yet. Although the body has passed amendments, not until the amend- 
ments are approved by the Student Senate do they become effective. 

It should be observed that one of the most clear legitimizing of a government is 
in its appropriations of money for the common weal. Another more emphatic act 
is in the levying of taxes. 

What the Summer Council has done this summer with its funds is a matter of 

The Summer Council should certainly accept the offer of RSO Business Manager 
Gerald F. Scanlon and recommend a budget for the 1968 SSEC. 

This proposed budget would serve as a reconsideration of funds appropriated this 
year. It might be a wise enough budget to suggest improved uses of the student's 
money. It might be an honest enough budget to suggest savings of the students' money. 

The Summer Council, one might say in review, has been fortunate in certain of 
its members. Viewing them is to enjoy the exercise of student government. Their 
reward is their own self-knowledge. These members don't care what questions the 
'Statesman' raises. 

The security and maturity of these members enforce the vigor of the SSEC 
despite its tenuous charter and even more tenuous rapport with its body of

Campus Comment 

Exec. Council Defended 
By JFK Upper Pres. 

To the Editor: 

During this summer, which we have 
all enjoyed in delightfully co<ol Amherst, 
an unwarranted amount of criticism has 
been directed at the Summer Student 
Executive Council. This branch of the 
student government has been heralded 
as frivolous, incompetent, incapable 
of serious action and dedicated to a con- 
tinuous round of parties. 

The major effort of the Council was 
the successful holding of its annual 
Casino Royale. A source of delight for 

all who attended, this night of sununer 
nights could not have been possible ex- 
cept for the dedicated effort of Chair- 
woman Carole Robinson. 

The Summer Student Executive Coun- 
cil, which is seeking to be co-ordinated 
with the Student Senate as its summer 
equivalent, has demonstrated beyond 
question its ability to fiuiction as an in- 
tegrated branch of the student govern- 
ment. Now that the Council has proved 
itself, let it be recognized.

UMass Apathy Charge QuestioneJ 

To the Editor: 

In the midst of controversy concern- 
ing student apathy, childlike behavior, 
and the like, a gentleman has emerged 
to prove the contrary. On August 14, I 
foolishly left my wrist watch and col- 
lege ring resting on the wall behind 
John Adams Tower. When I finally re- 
membered my mistake, it was too late. 
The jewelry was gone. However, two 
days later I received word that my ring 
and watch could be found in room 1106 
T-1. How many times do individuals re- 
turn a watch they have found? It would 

have been very easy to keep the jewelry 
and forget the entire matter. However, 
Paul Appleby thought in a different 
manner, as he was willing to return the 
lost property. When I offered Mr. Ap- 
pleby a minimal reward he flatly re- 
fused by stating "I couldn't." How many 
individuals "couldn't?" Paul Appleby is 
a noble citizen in my estimation, and he 
has restored my faith in human beings. 
To this man I say, thank you. Perhaps 
this campus does not consist only of

cepting an applicant seem a fair exam- 
ple: (1) nature of motivation for aca- 
demic work; (2) breadth and depth of 
Intellectual interests; (3) originally; 
(4) independence; (5) sensitivity and 
power of mind; and (6) capacity for 

Cambridge obviously differs from 
Harvard in its concept of education. It 
stresses labored attention on a particu- 
lar area above all others, and a know- 
ledge, one might say insideout, of that 

This Is fine, as long a« one does not 
lose sight of this area's significance in 
perspective to the rest of humanity and 

its relevence to one's own life and hu- 
man interest as an advancing whole. 

One might take for an example a 
highly specialized course. To know 
everything about the Rise and Fall of 
the Roman Empire is quite an achieve- 
ment, to be sure, but what good is a 
knowledge of the Roman Empire for it- 
self? It's hundreds of years gone, and 
we happen to be living now. 

More important is the relation of the 
Roman Empire and its discoveries and 
theories to ourselves — what it had to 
say that Is universally true — what is 
Just as important to ourselves as it was 
to those creatures, long since rotted 
away, who wrote, discovered and theo- 
rized, in that age. For all time. 

The Cambridge don, walled up in his 
"Knowledge," is unconditionally a buf- 
foon unless he can relate. Moreover, 
one can't relate unless one knows what 
to relate to. 

Said the venerable Louis Lyons, "But 
however much one specializes, there 
will be areas beyond." This is where the 
need for a liberal education conies in. 

Academic, or specialized, learning for 
itself and itself alone — the fallacy of 
"Art For Art's Sake" — fe idiocy, a diain 
on mankind's progress, and the shallow 
person who dares propound this theory 
should be, if not hui%, ignored.

(Itaprintad froaa the Boston Hcnmld-Traveler ) 

At the start of "Don't Look Back," the "cinema verite" film of an English tour made by Bob Dy- 
lan, who is somewhat of a phenomenon in the world of pop music, shows him backstage before a con- 
cert. The rest of the D. A. Pennebaker film at New England Life Hall elaborates on this scene. 

Long hair carefully casual, Dylan walks up and down, hung with his guitar — string ends waving 
without discipline Rigged from the guitar is a harmonica. Hanging from his lips is a cigarette. He lias 
the tautness most artists have before an appearance. 

TTien he moves out into the wings and onto the stage. There are screams. He goes into his number, 
written by him, "BaOyy, All I Want to Do Is Be Friends With You." It's a recital to a guitar. 

The sequences which follow are not actually true "verite." They are documentary, since they con- 
tain a flashback scene showing where Dylan came from all of a sudden. He's standing back of a truck 
singing to field hands — through liis nose. Then there's a cut to— where? Madison Square Garden? 

The words in the endless area of the arena are indistinguishable, but the beat is there on his 
guitar and the blues on his harmonica. And the thought is there that is a sort of one-man-band, a 
minstrel for handouts. 

This opinion is revised, however, as the film goes on, as he talks to the press, as he works, as the 
words of his songs become intelligible. Then he emerges as a poet, an artist. 

"You who ptdlosophize," he sings, "Get that wrap away from your face — ^now is the time for your 
tears." Another song: "It's All Right, Maw, I'm Only Bleeding." 

With American-bom, farm-bom Dylan is Joan Baez, who not only sings with no inhibitions, but 
has a lovely exchange with a reporter: He says, "Joan?" She answers: "Baez. B-A-E-Zed." Said he, 
"Sorry I dkln't recognize you." And she: "Good." 

Also there is Donovan, obvi<Hisly very popular in England. The young audience got a big kick out 
Of a tabloid headline: "Dylan Digs Donovan." There's a scene showing that each digs the other. 

The camera, however, is most- |_> 
ly on Dylan. A nice one when he 
ribs a reporter from a national 
news magazine. "You wouldn't 
even know about me ever," he 
said. "I couldn't even tell you 
I'm not a folk singer. 

"I am Just as good as Caruso. 
Now you see right away we have 
our little disagreements. But I 
iiit all the notes and I can hold 
my breath tliree times as long." 
Scenes of sold-out concert 
after sold-out concert, after- 
wards in the car elated, or in 
the train fatigued. The dicker- 
ings of his agent. The calls to 
police to "get that gird off my 

It's lively, cheeky and funny, 
and yet at the core of "Don't 
Look Back" is much of the 
philosophy of the young today, 
the basis of cynicism. It will be 
at New England Life Hall for 
two weeks, presented by Oub 
47, Inc., in Cambridge. 

Shows Welfare Differences 


CHICAGO Cfl — How needy must a person be to warrant gov- 
ernment help in paying his medical expenses? 

A survey by The Associated Press shows there is a sharp varia- 
tion in medicaid, Joint federal-state programs designed to provide 
medical care to needy persons. 

Thirty-three states and territories have adopted programs and 
such legislation is pending in several others. 

In New York, a family of four with one wage earner is eligible 
for financial help to meet doctor and hospital bills if its net income 
is less than $6,000 a year, or about $114 a week. 

In California, a family of four is eligible for s\ich help if annual 
income is less than $3,900. 

In a number of states, including Vermont, Maine, Missouri, New 
Mexico and Oregon, eligibility is limited mainly to those persons al- 
ready receiving welfare payments under the aid to the blind, dis- 
abled, old age and dependent 
children programs. 

In 1967, New York State will 
pay about $250.6 million of an 
estimated total cost of $738 mil- 
lion. The federal government 
will supply albout $276.9 million, 
with individual localities con- 
tributing another $210.5 million. 
At the other extreme, M^ne 
appropriated fl.9 million this 
year, and Montana 91.4S million 
and Vermont $1.1 million. 

The federal government pays 
from 50-83% of the costs. Pay- 
ments are based on average in- 
comes in the states.

'All About Eve 

ISO minutes 

Bette Davis, Anne Baxter, 

George Sanders 

"All about Eve" concerns a 
self-centered young woman, 
Anne Baxter, who lets noth- 
ing or no one interfere with 
her driving ambition to be- 
came an actress on Broadway. 

Even though she achieves 
her ambition, she loses much 
in so doing. Fate enters the 
picture in a beautiful irony at 
the conclusion of the film.

Red China Uses U.S. 
Negroes for Propaganda 


nist China has used an Ameri- 
can advocate of black rebellion— 
and the U.S. mails— to try to fan 
racial strife in U.S. cities and 
turn Negroes against whites in 

From Peking, Negro exile Ro- 
bert F. Williams has mailed in- 
to Negro districts a propaganda 
leaflet containing tips on arson 
and destruction, and advising 
Negro GIs to "eliminate" their 
white comrads in Vietnam. 

"The enemy land is America 
and America is the black man's 
battleground," wrote Williams in 
the latest available edition of 
his publication Crusader. 

Knowledgeable sources have 
said it is obvious that having set 
up his propaganda operation in 
Peking, Williams is under orders 
and control of the Red Chinese. 
A Washington ^postal spokes- 
man said Wednesday it is of 
course too late to do anything a- 
bout the latest edition of the 
Crusader which is labeled as hav- 
ing been published in Peking in 

He said however the Post Of- 
fice probably would consult with 
the Customs Bureau and the 
Justice Dept. to see if futxire ed- 
itions could be barred lawfully. 
The 12-pg. folder contains a run- 
down on methods of clogging 
sewer lines and highways, burn- 

ing public facilities and smashing 
windows without getting caught. 
It also says that American 
Negroes should refuse to fight in 
Vietnam. But it says those who 
are "trapped into" serving should 
"throw a monkey wrench into 
those murderous operations." 

Further, it says "They should 
eliminate as many of theii* real 
enemies as they can at the front 
so that these racists will not be 
able to return home and intensi- 
fy the brutalization and exter- 
mination of black people to the 
extent that they are currently 
exterminating the Vietnamese 

Postal, customs and Justice 
Etept. officials say their authority 
to police incoming propaganda 
has been sharply restricted in re- 
cent years by Supreme Court 
decisions on freedom of expres- 

A post office source said the 
postal jurisdiction begins after 
material has been cleared by cus- 
toms. A customs spokesman said 
such matericil is barred at the 
ports of entry only if it is trea- 
sonable or advocates overthrow 
of the government or cissassiiia- 
tion of the President. 

Because of legal restrictions, 
the officials said, they are unable 
to determine the extent of 
Crusader's circulation. 

One official said, however, "a 
hell of a lot of them come in." 

Two Countries Discover 
Practical Pot Reproduction Method 

AP Science Writer 

can and Israeli chemists reported 
Wednesday the first practical 
method for artificially reproduc- 
ing the two intoxicating ingre- 
dients of marijuana, the halluci- 
nation-producing drug. 

The scientists said the devel- 
opment finally opens the way to 
much greater understanding of 
how the smoke from marijuana 
acts on the body as a whole, how 
it affects the brain — and whe- 
ther it has additional dangerous 
side effects. 

They said that, us to now, the 
mind-affecting action of mfu-i- 
juana - like drugs on humans 
can't be accurately predicted 
from the action of the natural 
drugs in various lab animals. 

Moreover, they said, isolation 
of the key intoxicating ingredi- 
ents from the natural marijuana 
plant is tedious and impractical. 
Thus, a search has been under 
way for a practical method to 

synthesize — duplicate artificially 
— these ingredients, and produce 
them in a pure form suitable 
for research. 

Achievement of this weis re- 
ported in separate communica- 
tions to the Journal of The Am- 
erican Chemical Society by re- 
search teams from the two coun- 

Dr. Herchel Smith of Wyeth 
Laboratories, Inc., Philadelphia, 
headed the American Group. The 
Isrselis included Dr. Raphael Me- 
choulam of the Hebrew Univ. of 
Jerusalem and researchers Paul 
Braun and Yehiel Gaoni of the 
Weizmann Institute, Rehovoth. 

They said syntheses of both in- 
gredients involve relatively sim- 
ple processes, employing start- 
ing materials viddely available to 
chemists. Thus, marijuana re- 
searchers should be able to ob- 
tain plenty of the synthetic stuff 
for extensive studdes in animals 
and human volimteers, they said. 

These are chemicals that can

Amherst Summer Theatre 
Opens with Shaw Play 

Amherst C5ollege Summer Theater opens Friday evening, Au- 
gust 25, with a production of George Bernard Shaw's ARMS AND

wiJl be given performances Friday, Saturday, axHl Sunday (August 
25, 26, 27) at Kirby Theater, beginning at 8:30 p.m. 

The classic satire on war and romanticism, ARMS AND THE 
MAN is set in Bulgaria during the Balkan Wars (1884) and provides 
Shaw with niunerous opportunities to poke de^htful fun at the 
idealistic notions with whrch men and natkwK justify the making 
of war on each other. 

The leading militaiy figrures in Shaw's parody are Captain 
BJuntchli, a Swiss mercenary played by Marc Parsons (AC '68), 
Sergius, a Bulgarian oavatlry commander played by Steve Collins 
(AC '69), and Major Petkoff, the highest ranking Bulgarian in the 
Bulgarian Army (there aren't many) played by David Stewart (AC 

The distaff side of the hostilities includes Abbie Spreyer as 
Katherine, Major Petktoff's wife, Karen Tucker as Raina, his 
daughter, and Susan Richardson as Louke, the maid. All the ladies 
are from Mount Holyoke College. Steve Barker (AC '68) is seen as 
Nicola, the Petkoff's butler. 

ARMS AND THE MAN, as well as THE KNACK (Sept. 1, 2, 
3), and (CHARLEY'S AUNT (Sept. 8, 9, 10), the other plays in the 
Amherst company's repertoire, is directed and designed by Prof.

SSEC Ends Session 
With Recommendations 

By PAT PETOW, 'Statesman' Editor 

Dr. Harold J. VanderZwaf; has been appointed liead of the 
Men's Physical Education Department. 

After voting to give $100 to two 
cJiarities, the Children's Heart 
Fund and the Cushman School 
for Retarded Children in Amherst 
the Summer Student Executive 
Council spent the remainder of 
its last meeting on recommenda- 
tions to the Student Senate. 

Publication Discloses That College 
Staff will Double in Six Year Period 

Colleges and universities will have increased 
their full-time professional staff by more than 50 
percent during a six-year period ending in the fall 
of 1969, according to a new U.S. Office of Educa- 
tion publication. The greatest rate of staff growth 
is looked for in two-year colleges. 

The publication, Staffing American Colleges and 
Universities, is designed to help college and uni- 
versity administrators plan ahead on staff needs. 
In announcing the study, Peter P. Muinhead, Asso- 
ciate Commissioner for Higher Education, pointed 
out that the current decade is expected to witness 
a doubling of enrollments in higher education. 

"The present and future need for faculty in in- 
stitutions of higher education in the United States 
is a matter of direct concern to college and uni- 
versity administrators, present and future college 
students, their parents, and society as a whole," 
he said. "All are concerned that there be well- 
qualified people in sufficient supply to meet the 

The study of the distribution of professional 
staff in 125 academic and administrative fields is 
based on a nationwide survey covering 1,809 col- 
leges and universities representing 97.1 percent of 
student enrollment. Using the fall of 1963 as a 
base point, the cooperating institutions also pro- 
vided estimates of the demand for staff from the 
fall of that year through the fall of 1969. 

The study, prepared by Dr. James F. Rogers of 
the Bureau of Higher Education, does not make 
projections for the small percentage of institu- 
tions that did not participate or for new institu- 

tions that will come into being during the period 
"nie survey showed that: 

• In the l%3-64 academic year, the cooperat- 
ing institutions employed some 265,000 full-time 
and 85,000 part-time professional staff. By the 
beginning of the fall semester of 1969, these in- 
stitutions expect to have recruited 200,000 new 
full-time professional staff, 148,000 for new posi- 
tions and 52,000 as replacements. 

• In 1963, of the total professional staff, 40.3 
percent held the doctorate, 41.4 the master's and 
18.3 the bachelor's as the highest earned degree. 

• In 1963-64, public institutions employed 60 
percent of the full^inie staff and private ones 40 
percent. By l%9-70, the staff of public colleges 
and universities is expected to have increased to 
65 percent of the total. 

• Full-time staff of the two-year institutions 
is expected to increase by 134 i>ercent during the 
six years, a rate of growth more than twice that 
of the liberal arts colleges and teachers colleges 
and more than triple that of universities and tech- 
nical schools. 

Colleges and universities expect increases in 
class size, in staff time devoted to research, and 
in the percentage of women on their staffs. De- 
creases are anticipated in faculty turnover and in 
the number of semester or quarter hours com- 
prising full-time teaching loads. 

Copies of the new publication (OE-53028) sell 
for 65 cents each and may be obtained directly 
from the Superintendent of Documents, U.S. Gov- 
ernment Printing Office, Washington, D.C. 20402. 

The Council urged the estab- 
lished student government to ac- 
cord to it recognition as an RSO 

The summer government also 
recommended: that Open Houses 
be extended to 24 hours a month 
in the fall "because of the suc- 
cess we had with no known viola- 
tions;" that towing only occur 
when violations of state laws 
have been made; that the Senate 
insure that Swing Shift Fresh- 
men get fall i.d.'s. 

The SSEC asked that the Sen- 
ate secure room telephones next 
summer; that $75 each summer 
session be alloted to each resi- 
dence and that additional money 
for uses involving all the Univer- 
sity community come from the 
Council; that the SSEC be given 
a larger amount of money next 

summer; that freshmen not be 
segregated in summer housing. 

Additionally, the summer coun- 
cil recommended that the prac- 
tice of combining men's and 
women's judicial and area boards 
as one board be continued; that 
transient and orientation students 
be housed in separate physical 
buildings from those of summer 

Receiving unanimous support 
was a recommendation made by 
Ken Kaplan that a UMass Bos- 
ton Weekend be held at Amherst 
on a weekend including a home 
foodball game and that the work 
of coordination be continued. 

The Council also approved a 
recommendation that the break- 
fast hour be extended to 9:30 at 
the Dining Commons in line with 
that of the regular year. 

Communications Board Differs 
Sliarpiy witli Administration 

The Student Communications Board issued a position paper this 
summer to set out its functions and goals. 

The reason for the statement from the Board, which has been 
in operation for less than a year, was, in its words, "because certain 
problems have developed which indicate that our perception of the 
role and responsibility of the Board differs substantially from that 
of other components of the University community." 

The position paper declared: "The first time that an issue of 
any dimension was raised, we found, after the Board had exercised 
its review mandate and made certain recommendations, that its 
recommendations would not be accepted and that an elaborate list 
of recommendations, some of them covering the very points whl^h 
the *?'>•"• rf had already worked on would be forwarded to the Presi- 
dent before Yahoo could resume publication." 

"Furthermore, the Board learned of these stipulations from the 
Editor of Yahoo and not from the Provost's Office." 

Councilors Rate Accomplishments in Statesman Poll 

By The Senator 

Members of the Summer Stu- 
dent Executive Council, as they 
prepare to close the legislative 
session, have enumerated the 
summer's accomplishments, 

rated their press, and offered 
suggestions for the summer of 
1968 in a 44-question poll distri- 
buted by the 'Statesman.' 

Although the full member- 
ship of the Council is 38, only 
17 Councilors returned the ques- 
tionnaire passed .out at .the 
meeting of August 22. 

According to the responses, 
the class composition of the 17 
is: (8) '68. (4) '69, (3) '71. and 
(2) no answer. Only six of the 
respondees cited government as 
their major and as a career 
field in which they were inter- 

Sixteen of the 17 would run 
again for the SSEC if they had 
it to do over and 16 intetid to 
participate actively again in 
student affairs. Furthermore, 
only four ruled out the possibil- 
ity of running for the Student ' 
Senate while the others indi- 
cated they were considering it. 

Of these six Councilors re- 
ported that they had definitely 
decided to run for the Senate. 

from Agawam' 
' Reporter 

One of the members wrote of 
his experience this summer: 
"Just going to classes is exist- 
ing, but. . . .The Council is a 
connection between the school, 
the faculty, the administration, 
the buildings, and the important 
link, the students!" 

However, the Councilor who 
said he would not run again, 
had he to do it over, expressed 
the belief that "it is very dif- 
ficult" to represent apathetic 
students. "I have found," con- 
tinued the commuter, "I am 
only representing my own in- 
terest which I hope reflects the 
wishes of the student body." 

Most of the members shared 
his Judgement about the apathy 
of the student body. Twelve 
answered that the students were 
not concerned about student 
government and six also called 
apathy the major issue facing 
the 1968 SSEC. 

While eight Councilors thought 
the student government this 
summer did "as much as could 
be done" to alleviate apathy, 
six thought the body did not do 
enough. One response was 
"They (SSEC) did hardly any- 
thing, but as much as could be 

done, which was not enough!" 

The major accomplishments 
of the SSEC, in the opinion of 
its members were (in this 
order): Las Vegas Nite, Open 
Houses, free outdoor movie, the 
tolephone investigation, and ef- 
•• . :» to make the swing-shift 
ireshman feel that be is a part 
of the University. 

Other areas requiring the at- 
tention of the 1968 body, the 
members thought, are: getting 
i.d.'s for swing-shift freshmen, 
greater coordination with the 
Student Senate, room tele- 
phones, towing, closed doors 
during Open Houses, greater 
recognition from the faculty, 
and integrating UMass Boston 
and Amherst. 

In the section of the question- 
naire calling for self-analysis, 
the Council judged the perform- 
ance of its president, Dave 
Bartholomew, as fair and that 
of its advisor-parliamentarian, 
Lew Gurwltz as good. 

Answering the question, "do 
you think a majority of the 
Council did its job 'well' i.e. 
conscientiously, intelligently, 
effectively, or 'well' on other 
bases?" only three replied yes. 
Three others thought more than 
a majority of the SSEC did 

their job well, but 11 members 
answered less than a majority 
did their work well. 

Of the 17 responding, four 
Councilors answered that they 
were not students at UMass 
(Amherst). The overall opinion 
was that the unfamiliarity 
with UMass of some of the 
Council did not have a notice- 
able effect. 

One representative, however, 
wrote that the unfamiliarity 
contributed to the SSEC by 
making the University aware of 
problems faced by new mem- 
bers of the University. 

Taking the honors as "best" 
Councilor in the opinion of her 
peers, was Carole Robinson. 
Mrs. Robinson received seven 
votes as best and two other 
votes as "second best" Coun- 
cilor. Buddy Vaughan was also 
cited as best Councilor by some. 

Receiving mention among the 
other widely-distributed votes 
as best Councilor were Paul 
Gibbs, Jeff Tinrni, Burt Freed- 
man, Ken Kaplan. Honored as 
second best Councilor were 
Dave Clarke, Gale Palmer, Dick 
Crawford, and Ken Kaplan. 

The response to the 'States- 
man' poll question. "Do you 
think 'Statesman' Council cov- 

erage was adequate in passing 
on what was happening?" was 
mainly "no." However, three 
members gave an unqualified 
"yes" that the coverage was 
adequate as an answer while 
seven others qualified affirm- 
ative answers. 

One member wrote, "Maybe 
too damn adequate. . . ." 

Other responses accused the 
newspaper of fostering student 
apathy by 'constant degrada- 
tion," and of being "unable to 
go out and gather news." 

The most spirited answer de- 
clared: "If it wasn't for the 
S.S.E.C. the [sicl could be writ- 
ten on on [sic] toilet paper be- 
cause they had no othier news 
fit to print." 

In another reply, ten Coun- 
cilors expressed the belief that 
the SSEC could not have been 
as good as it was without the 
press. Four members .went 
further to say that they thought 
there could not have been a 
student government without a 

One member observed, that 
there certainly could have been 
a student government without 
the paper because. "Not many 
people read it." 







The new Massachusetts Campus t 
Center will be built next spring- 
containing provisions for student 
activities, adult education, con- 
ferences, offices, restaurants and 
cafeterias, and guest accommo- 
dations for conferences. The to- 
tal cost is estimated at 14 million 
dollars, including an under- 
ground parking garage.

UM Press to Reprint Babeuf Book 

The University of Massachu- 
setts Press has announced the 
publication of a popular reprint 
of "The Defense of Gracchus 
Babeuf." originally published by 
Leonard Baskin's Gehenna Press 
in a limited edition. 

The book is a translation by 
John Anthony Scott of Gracchus 
Babeuf's historic defense before 
the High Court of \'endome in 
April of 1797, in the waning 
hours of the French Revolution. 

Although it failed to save Ba 
beuf's life — he was guillotined 
in May of 1797— the defense has 
been regarded since as one of 
the most splendid testaments to 
freedom of man's mind ever 

Active in the French Revolu- 

tion from its beginning, Babeuf 
found himself, with 47 others, on 
trial for his life in 1797. Among 
his crimes was the publication of 
a Journal that agitated for civil 
rights, a free press, the over- 
throw of the Directory and re- 
turn to the democratic constitu- 
tion uf 1793. 

Babeuf's words were buried for 
almost a century before his coun 
try printed them in full. Exccpl 
for a sentence or two in scattered 
tracts and a few pages in Ed 
mund Wilsons book "To the Fin- 
land Station. " the main argu- 
ments of Babeuf's defense were 
not translated into English until 
the Gehenna Press publication in

A Lesson In Love 93 minutes 

A Lesson In Love is one (jf 

Bergman's purest comedies 
but is colored by a dazzling 
portrayal of homely, awkward 
adolescence. A middle-aged 
couple, after many philandcr- 
ings, try to win each other 
back. The film concludes in 
Copenhagen with a purely 
slapstick finish.
